Fringe & Free

Artist Statement

DFW-based, handmade fiber and floral decor. Fringe & Free understands how intimate home decor is. Inviting a piece to live along side you, in the most intimate of settings, is an honor. Care, thoughtfulness, and a genuine heart for homemaking flow from Nathalie's hands into the pieces made. We hope you can sense that when you have your pieces in your hands at your home.

Fringe & Free is named after the woman in the Synoptic Gospel who was sick and believed if she could only touch the fringe of Christ's robe then she would be healed.

The Artist

Meet Nathalie

Nathalie Lu is the artist behind Fringe & Free. Wife, mother, and maker, she is drawn to the simple and natural aspects of life. Finding overlooked things surrounding us, such as cotton and florals, and giving them the attention needed to illuminate their inerrant created beauty is her joy. Colors, textures, and feelings of nature constantly inspire her.

Hand-knotted at home, with a desire that each one would add warmth, breath, and peace to the spaces they go to.

Texas-born and raised, she lives with her husband, two sons, and German Shepherd in Dallas.
