WHAT WE DO
Talini is a design studio based in Charlottesville, Virginia. We began as a small, artisanal luxury home linens brand, designing and manufacturing bed and table linens made exclusively from beautiful Italian linens and cottons.
We now have a shop in Gordonsville , Virginia where you can see the full collection plus a small, curated selection of home accessories from other designers and makers.
HOW IT BEGAN
In 2014, designer Ann Driskill was inspired to design a clean, contemporary luxury linens collection after falling in love with linen sheets sent from a friend living in Italy.
Formerly a fashion designer in NYC and design director of the Barbie Collector line at Mattel in LA, Ann is passionate about textiles, interior design, art and fashion. Raised in Virginia, she graduated from the University of Virginia (studio art) and Parsons School of Design (fashion design).
Our Italian linen fabrics are available in our own range of 7 colors and 3 weave textures—plain, herringbone and sateen. Mix them together however you like or layer with other solids, prints and patterns.
All our Italian linens and cottons are yarn-dyed with an ivory or pale gray warp, which adds a beautiful depth not found in garment-dyed fabrics.
Most of our fabrics can be purchased as yardage.
We keep a limited selection of finished products in stock and make bespoke linens to order. Using our fabrics, You can design your own fabric and color combinations with details of your choice to bring your singular vision to life.
We also offer interior design services.
