Rachel Doriss, our design director, participated in an energizing and motivating panel this morning at the Hearst Tower alongside Welspun's managing director Dipali Goenka and Soul Cycle's SVP of PR and brand strategy Gabby Etrog Cohen. Led by Kate Kelly Smith, vice president of Hearst Design Group, the women spoke about what empowers them as individuals, how they empower those around them and what they believe are the future steps to be taken in continuing this particular conversation.

How do you encourage collaboration at work?

"Fostering and supporting sisterhood is key!" - Dipali Goenka, Welspun

"Be open to ideas other than your own." - Rachel, Pollack

"Always start everything with 'we'." - Gabby, SoulCycle

Pencil To Gouache

We strongly believe in the value of drawing with a pencil rather than a mouse. Besides the control it gives over the quality of the line, putting pencil to paper expresses a uniquely personal hand, and the majority of our patterns begin as hand-drawn sketches. Our designers are constantly creating work in our NYC design studio and recently, Chase decided to dip a pencil eraser into gouache paint to create a simple repeat with an improvisational touch.

Rachel and Chase recently traveled back to India to visit some of our fellow artisan mills which create some of our best sellers including Priya, Shisha, In Flux and Prodigy. While there, Rachel and Chase were able to revisit many of the artisan techniques that are still so vibrant and alive in the country, such as woodblock printing, the hand dyeing of yarns, embroidery and hand weaving. Enjoy the colors!

In honor of President's Day, as well as our newest Americana-inspired pattern, Weave On, February's colors of the month are red, white and blue! Even though this combination is a usual one here in the USA, we love all the unexpected ways it pops up, too! 

The inspiration continues on our Pinterest page.

From left to right: Thoroughfare in midnight sky, Game On in red rover, West Coast in Pacific, Knotty in Queen of Hearts, Eliza in blue parasol, Flaxen Field in canal and Weave On in Americana. Taza in indigo as the backdrop.
