We had a very successful photoshoot at our warehouse photo studio this week! In a continued collaboration with Avery Boardman and with the help of many others, we were able to photograph some of their beautiful pieces upholstered in select fabrics from our most recent collection, Fusion! Here is a behind the scenes take on the shoot. Above are Zinnia, Color Guard and Sedan Plush on the pillows with West Coast on the sofa. Those are Vito's legs, he was our model for the day.

Molly's Shirt

Our junior designer, Molly Haynes, came into the office wearing her own handmade shirt!

"The shirt was handmade on a knitting machine. It is similar to a loom but has tiny needles that knit each individual stitch when you run the yarn across it. I used a special technique called “knit weaving” where I manually placed each row of the jute fiber across the bed of the machine in a way that it will weave into the knit structure. The whole thing takes about 5 hours!"

Rhode Island School of Design textile students came to the design studio last week to talk with Rachel about the industry and how it all works once you're out of school. Rachel also presented our most recent Rise and Shine collection and there were definitely lots of 'oohs and ahhs' happening! Our kind of audience! 

Thanks for joining us, RISD!

Last week Chase, Molly and Rachel visited one of our favourite domestic partners. While down there, they got to look through their French archives consisting of stacks and piles of fabrics both paper and woven, dating back to the beginning of the century. Our design team was in awe!

Warp bobbins as far as the eye can see! These yarns are on a structure called a creel which holds the bobbins while a giant warp is being spun. 

Rainbow warp yarns running off the creel to the velvet loom.

Jacquard loom.
