About Artistic Linen Creations
Artistic Linen Creations (ALC) design and wholesale fine linens for homes and special events. We strive to offer unique contemporary designs and best values to our customers. Our products are distributed from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
Meet The Founder
Hi, my name is Florence Luo, founder and design director of ALC. I grew up in rural China and attended university in the city of Nanjing. I came to the US in 1991 to attend graduate school at the University of Minnesota. After finishing my degree, I worked for 8 years as a design engineer for US corporations in California and Connecticut. I moved to Vancouver, Canada in 2004 after my husband took a faculty position at the University of British Columbia.
My hometown has a tradition of weaving fabrics and making fine handicrafts, and my niece has been operating a linen factory for her European clients from there. On a recent trip to visit my family, we decided to collaborate and expand the linen business to North America. Now after a couple of years' product development, Artistic Linen Creations is ready to distribute to the North American market.
- To supply our customers with high quality soft furnishings that are beautiful, practical and affordable.
- To better our workers' living standards and provide education opportunities to their children.
ALC Gives Back
We believe in the kind, caring, sharing, giving and peaceful side of humanity. We volunteer and donate money to support our local and international communities. Florence can be found at U-Hill Elementary School as a class mom every term.
We continuously identify and donate funds to people and organizations needing the most help. Our recent projects include:
- Funded the shipping of clothing and toys to the Volsk orphanage in Saratov, Russia organized by Alexei Cheviakov of UBC.
- Tuition assistence to the first student who passed the National College Exams and entered a university in the village where some of our workers live.
