About Lea

Lea Rutledge
In 2019, Lea left her career as an MIT-trained energy analyst and lecturer and turned her passion for environmental preservation towards place-based textiles.
 
Inspired by her beloved hometown of Wenham, Massachusetts, where her family has lived for five generations, Lea’s fabrics and wallpapers have been described as “fresh, spontaneous, and nostalgic”.
 
Her “Cape Ann Collection" launched in May 2021.
