Why POLLACK  |  I have a great deal to learn, and POLLACK is the ideal environment in which to do it. Every day here is equal parts inspiring and humbling.

Impressions of NYC  |  I grew up just two local stops away on the Metro-North red line. I’d been exposed to the city’s charms (and desensitized to it’s nuisances) at an early age.

Favorite design style  |   I would say that in general I hold particular appreciation for designs that are strong (a punch of pattern or color or texture, or any composite thereof) but still retain small moments of intimacy, details that entice and linger after the initial impression.

How will your internship affect your coursework  |   POLLACK is providing me not only with an entirely refitted arsenal of textile-related possibilities, but also with the opportunity to adopt a more conscious outlook on my work and my work ethic. I feel that at such an early stage in my career as an artist it is all too easy to lose perspective, to become overly introspective to the point of self-absorption, and so I am grateful to be able to expand on my viewpoint panoramically.

The four striking patterns shown above offer a tantalizing glimpse of India’s past and present textile traditions.  Priya combines both with hand-printed wood block motifs and detailed, multi-color machine embroidery, stitched with state-of-the-art equipment.  Deity uniquely combines the legendary Kantha embroidery with a hand-clipped layer and embroidered mirrors.  India's iconic grill motif continues in Jaipur and Shisha, with a hint of the exotic underlying their very modern fibers, coloring and effect.

Our Pure fabric line adds four new designs: Knotty goes for spot on color and extravagant texture, Highland Striae crisply tailors the window with fine, dry wool and linen yarns, Challis Field adds a shifting twill weave to a seductive challis and Feathered Flax weaves a softly tonal warp in a relaxed herringbone construction.

Katachi is a uniquely layered window fabric that adheres translucent linen-fiber paper to gauze in a hand screen-printing process that also imprints the color and the abstract pattern.  A final washing removes the unprinted paper and reveals the fibrous motif against the fine linen scrim.

Painterly gestures brush large swathes of transparent, graduated hues, mixing two warp colors with seven different filling yarns to achieve Watercolor’s complex range of tones, luster and texture.

Two fashionable, fun and sophisticated textiles broaden the options in our High Performance / Bleach Cleanable group.  Lunar Eclipse alternates weaves and yarns to stripe the ground and craft the moons and half-moons that crowd the field.  Rustique turns to heathered color and a simple basketweave-like construction to show off the soft tonal variations of its thin and heavy yarns.
