Language of the Birds Launches Beautiful Wallpaper and Fabrics

Transform your home with the Hawai‘i label’s stunning patterns, inspired by rainbows and Honolulu architecture.


The start of the new year is the perfect time for a little hale refresh. Luckily, one of our favorite slow fashion labels, Hawai‘i- and New York-based Language of the Birds, recently entered the home décor arena with its first wallpaper and upholstery fabric collections.

To get the scale just right, designer Tsia Carson reimagined three of her signature clothing and accessory prints: Rainbow, a ’70s-inspired pattern featuring large-scale loops, Snake, a nod to the mystical ouroboros serpent that devours its own tail, and ‘Ālewa, an homage to the vertical architecture of Honolulu’s ‘Ālewa Heights neighborhood, built on the slopes of the Ko‘olau Mountain range.

Perfect for curtains or cushions, the upholstery fabric comes in 100% cotton and 100% linen, while the wallpaper is done in responsibly sourced nonwoven vellum that’s suitable for both residential and commercial installations. Both are digitally printed in the U.S. using a nontoxic, zero-water-waste process. And custom colorways are even available via special order.
