    Hand made textiles from Au Retour studio in Brooklyn

    Established by Emily Diehl in 2010, Au Retour is a textile design and print studio currently based in Brooklyn.

    Offering a line of artful, printed home goods and accessories, Emily’s designs reflect a playful love of experimentation, materials and formal exploration. Modern and contemporary art, plants, modern architecture, traditional crafts, futbaalll and utopian movements are just a few of the obsessions that inspire her work.

    ABOUT OUR PROCESS
    Each of our designs starts as an experiment in the studio – block printing, folding and weaving paper, sketches in water color – all make their way into the computer so they can be put in repeat and set up for printing.

    We use a variety of different printing techniques – from hand screen printing, to block printing, to digital fabric printing, to embroidery – each project and design takes on a life of its own.

    Made in small batches, all of our pillows and fabrics are printed on natural cotton and linen blends with non-toxic water based inks and fiber reactive dyes that are hand sewn in our studio in Brooklyn, NY.

    ABOUT EMILY
    Originally from Virginia, Emily studied printmaking and painting in Atlanta and received her MFA at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and Tufts University, before moving to Brooklyn, NY in 2006.

    Building on her background in painting and inspired by her thesis work in graduate school, which focused on the Bauhaus and cross disciplinary movements in Art, Design and Architecture, she started her work in textiles by taking fragments of her sketches for paintings and developing them into screen prints and patterns for fabric.

    After stints working at galleries, museums and an interior design firm in New York City, she returned to the studio full-time with the simple goal of exploring the world through making things each day.

    Currently, she shares a storefront studio and home in Brooklyn, NY with her husband, who is a painter, and their cat – Kitty.

    Although we have taken great steps to standardize our pieces (hey, it's our style), each item is handmade and there will be slight variations in our prints and from item to item.

    We have made every effort to faithfully describe and depict our pieces and take great care in making them for you, however, should you notice a problem, please refer to our refund policy and feel free to contact us. Please note that monitors WILL vary in how they depict color.

    We store all of our inventory in protective containers away from dust etc.
    All items are made in a smoke free environment, we do however have a studio cat (kitty), but she does not frolic on our pieces, walk around on studio tables, or even sit in laps during work time. She mostly just kind of hangs out and looks cute :)
