A bold exploration of black and white, Harp adds rich texture to the graphic interplay of horizontal and vertical forms. It represents the Chilewich design team’s dedication to pushing the boundaries of weaving through the integration of larger “floats”—the weft yarns that create a pattern by passing over clusters of warp threads in a planned sequence, and vice versa.
Evoking the dimension and variety of quilting elements, Kite incorporates a broad array of hues within its decisive geometry. This multifaceted weave is the product of process. Months of development and handloomed iteration by the Chilewich design team resulted in a vibrant surface that takes on a distinctive character in each of the two debut colorways: Gemstone and Moonlight.
A playful combination of form and texture refined by tonal yarns, Quilted is a weave of weaves—a multilayered tribute to the art of quilting. Within the jacquard structure are a variety of weaves that create shading and generate patterns, coming together to form an expansively scaled, harmonious design with patchwork charm.
With its finely striped bands of varying widths and tones, this graphic design is a printed interpretation of the Japanese tradition of weaving scraps of old fabrics into sakiori textiles, from the word saku (to tear or rip) and oru (to weave). The Chilewich design team looked to antique sakiori textiles for inspiration and reimagined their intricate weave structures and lively lines in two dimensions with ink and paint.
