You've seen Matt and his style - now it's time to learn more about him!

Name: Matt Bobbins

Hometown: Colonia, NJ

University: SCAD

Studying: Fibers 

______________________________________________________________________________

Hobbies  |  Listening to traditional Eastern music, weaving, learning languages, expanding philosophically, dreaming.

Why POLLACK   Why not? It feels like a perfect fit: unbelievable use of materials and techniques, many different styles of cloth. I love textiles and so I can’t imagine anywhere else!

Impressions of NYC  |  I grew up in New Jersey and my father works here, so the city has always been a second home. I love the fast paced environment, tall buildings - I feel like I’m a part of something huge.

Favorite design style  |   Traditional Indian and Chinese, Peruvian (pre-Colombian) aboriginal, Japanese street style, geometric and op art, mech/tech, Coptic & Sassanian.

How will your internship affect your coursework     I’m already learning a lot of different structures, materials and techniques. I can only imagine how my weavings and creations will turnout with the worldly influence Pollack is giving me.

Any favorite POLLACK fabrics  |   Hard to chose! Maybe new Interplay or some of the other sheers and lenos – but don’t hold me to just that!

_________________________________________________________________________________________

 

Hobbies  |  Collecting coffee mugs around the world, reading, drawing & designing. 

Why POLLACK  |  I got introduced to POLLACK through the company's VP of Sales, Brad Bloom (who is amazing!) Learning more about the textile industry will help me in my future career as an [interior] designer. 

Impressions of NYC  |  I LOVE the atmosphere, all of the things to see and do, how every day is a new and exciting experience.

Favorite design style  |   My personal favorite is rustic with a hint of chic.

How will your internship affect your coursework   |   I had little experience with textiles and materials before I started my internship in June. Being able to see the process of designing and developing the product at the POLLACK headquarters along with working up in the showroom at the D&D a couple days during the week gives me multiple perspectives. Having the privilege of seeing both aspects of a company is very informative and also extremely beneficial to my internship experience. 

Any favorite POLLACK fabrics  |   If I had to chose, I would go with BewitchedDottie, and Spring Shower!
