New York Textile Month invites you to launch the locally sourced, designed and woven NYTB Project.
These heirloom pieces are the culmination of a unique collaboration between the founder of NYTM and trend forecaster Lidewij Edelkoort, along with Pascale Gatzen, co-founder of the worker cooperative ‘friends of light’.
NYTB's are designed by ‘friends of light’, Lori Weitzner studio, Suzanne Tick Studio, Lidewij Edelkoort, Thompson St Studio & Hiroko Takeda Studio. Each uniquely designed blanket is woven by Terry Buck at her workshop in the Hudson Valley. The fine wool is made by Buckwheat Bridge Angoras in Elizaville, NY where the sheep are swaddled with blankets winter long.
Please join the founder, farmer, designer and weavers, and share the opportunity to promote and sustain New York Textile arts.

Neocon 2018 | Tretford launches a new program to expand the possibilities of using their beautiful goat hair product. Bespoke area rugs.
The unique structure of tretford® rugs ensures a hard-edged construction that is dimensionally stable in simple terms, this means that tretford® will not fray or unravel at the edges, as many competitor rugs do over time. Furthermore, our hard-edge construction eliminates the need for conventional binding.
The dimensional stability also gives you the flexibility to cut tretford® to any shape, giving you endless possibilities for custom designs.

Fuoco, Italian: Fire
con fuoco. : fierily, impetuously —used as a direction in music.
Teatro La Fenice (pronounced [la feˈniːtʃe], "The Phoenix") is an opera house in Venice, Italy. It is one of "the most famous and renowned landmarks in the history of Italian theatre", and in the history of opera as a whole. Especially in the 19th century, La Fenice became the site of many famous operatic premieres at which the works of several of the four major bel canto era composers – Rossini, Bellini, Donizetti, Verdi – were performed.
Its name reflects its role in permitting an opera company to "rise from the ashes" despite losing the use of three theatres to fire, the first in 1774 after the city's leading house was destroyed and rebuilt but not opened until 1792; the second fire came in 1836, but rebuilding was completed within a year. However, the third fire was the result of arson. It destroyed the house in 1996 leaving only the exterior walls, but it was rebuilt and re-opened in November 2004.
