Shalene became interested in creating natural home products and decor shortly after taking up knitting. Upon realizing her passion for textiles, she began the process of building her business at night after work. After creating her first collection of woven wall-hangings on a whim, the ShaleneLorraine brand was born.

With a background in Graphic Design and a passion for handmade products, the building blocks were already in place for Shalene’s brand. Her unique and eclectic taste is reflected in each product, derived from a diverse family background with roots in Ecuador. With guidance from her mother and father, Shalene was raised to respect the earth, and bring out its beauty in everything she creates. 

ShaleneLorraine came to life in Bethlehem, PA and has since traveled back to her home town in Upstate New York.
