Original artwork by Lulu de Kwiatkowski by Banniere
As a child, Lulu de Kwiatkowski grew up spending her family vacations in Lyford Cay, Bahamas and currently resides there with her husband and three sons. Lulu lived in Paris and studied tromp l'oeil before moving back to NYC and launching LULU DK. Her company specializes in fabrics and wallpapers and she is known for her free-hand, whimsical style, mixed with bold graphic colors and geometrics, making her an international superstar. She and her arts have been published on the cover of Elle Décor, Architectural Digest, and Wall Street Journal, to name a few. Lulu's biggest source of inspiration has always been her mother and Mother Nature. Living amongst the flora and fauna of the Bahamas with the sun-drenched beaches, turquoise waters and electric pink bougainvillea, her tropical surroundings have shaped Lulu into the skilled artist she is today.

I decided to start Banniere after traveling the world and falling in love with the unique and varying styles and cultures in different towns and cities. I had a background working in Fashion for other companies such as Stubbs and Wootton and wanted to start something on my own that combined my love of travel, art and fashion. Through Banniere, I was able to work with these local artists and come up with designs that emanate these different cultures and turn them into wearable art: a silk scarf.
Banniere works with local artists in cities around the world on designs for silk scarves. Each scarf is specially crafted and packaged with a story about the artist’s connection to the city, art background and inspiration behind the design.
