A native of Israel, Liora Manné began to design textiles for the fashion industry in New York. Inspired by exploration of new mediums and materials, Manné developed a revolutionary process called Lamontage where acrylic fibers are layered and then interlocked by hand needle-punching to create custom blended colors. Lamontage allowed Manné to create patterns that could not have been achieved through traditional printing, weaving, or knitting. Her distinctive rugs and upholstery gained popularity, allowing Manné to open her own design studio.
Today, Manné continues to push the boundaries of textile design and application, including lighting, furniture, and tabletop items as well as handbags, shoes, and fashion accessories.
