...our new Coral & Tusk for POLLACK fabrics! Read the post here on today's DAILY AD. 

Here's a little background about the whimsical collaboration: Rachel Doriss and Stephanie Housley began their friendship as textile design majors at the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) in the late 90’s. Both women shared a love of fabric and a passion for embroidery and embellishment that would bring them together again 15 years later. Rachel pursued a career as a trained weaver designing upholstery and drapery fabrics and in 2012 became Design Director for POLLACKStephanie led the American branch of an Indian mill designing woven & embroidered fabrics and then in 2007 combined her fabric knowledge and unique drawing style to create a magical world of home and fashion accessories through her company Coral & Tusk. Though their careers took divergent paths Stephanie and Rachel remained close friends, intrigued and inspired by each other’s work.  Then in 2013, with a level of business maturity, a seasoned eye for what’s trending and a passion for making things, the two friends combined their strengths through collaboration.

The Goal: To bring the unique wit and artful embellishment of the Coral & Tusk brand to the fabric world of the professional interior designer.

The Result: Three beautiful textiles, Circus Toile, Circus Stripe and Quill, that combine the magic of Coral & Tusk imagery with the fabric expertise and sophistication of POLLACK.  Stephanie’s signature animals and feathers are rendered as beautifully detailed embroideries on a linen ground in continuous yardage suitable for upholstery and drapery.
