After the Jump: Interview with Shanan Campanaro of Eskayel

This week I had the honor of interviewing the incredibly talented- and inspiring- designer behind one of my favorite wallpaper and textile collections: Eskayel. Shanan Campanaro has been creating her beautiful watercolor-meets-Rorschach since she was a student at Central St. Martin’s in 2008 and she’s been a hit on the design scene ever since. I was so happy to hear more from her, as I’ve admired her can-do business attitude for a while now. Her willingness to take risks and aim for environmentally friendly products and processes whenever possible is admirable to say the least. I can’t wait to install one of her wallpaper designs in our office next week and I was just as happy and excited to talk to her yesterday. I hope you’ll enjoy her interview as much as I did- and don’t miss her answer to the last question of the show. It’s priceless. xo, grace

Shanan, your work is divine as well as the distinctness of your overall brand! It’s all such an inspiration. This is a GREAT interview! Thank you, Grace and Shanan, for sharing!


Excited to listen to this and have been a fan of Eskayel and their work for a long time. I love their vision, it’s always challenging and unique.


This was a funny, honest, insightful interview. I so appreciate hearing the story of a woman behind a successful business – her beginnings, the challenges presented, the direction she has taken and why. More of these, please!
