New York Textile Month

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.

Jill Malek: Natural Dimensions

   NATURAL DIMENSIONS  , A COLLECTION OF MIXED MEDIA WALLCOVERINGS AND RUG DESIGNS BY  JILL MALEK,  IS INSPIRED BY THE TEXTURED LAYERS AND SHIFTING DEPTHS OF THE EARTH.  AFTER HER MURAL COLLABORATION WITH ROCKWELL GROUP FOR THE BROOKLYN BOTANIC GARDEN WAS INSTALLED, MALEK NOTICED THAT DESIGNERS WOULD ALWAYS GRAVITATE TOWARDS THE LEFTOVER PRINTED SAMPLES SHE CARRIED WITH HER TO MEETINGS. MORE SPECIFICALLY, THEY WERE ESPECIALLY DRAWN TO THE DIMENSIONAL FELT DETAILS THAT WERE HAND-SEWN BY DANIEL TILLMAN FROM C3 DESIGN. “PEOPLE WOULD FEEL AND TOUCH THE FELT FLOWERS CONSTANTLY,” NOTED MALEK, PETTING THEM AS IF THEY WERE LITTLE ANIMALS. IT WAS THEN THAT SHE REALIZED THAT SHE COULD EXPERIMENT WITH PRINTING ON DIFFERENT METALLIC TEXTURED VINYLS, AND MARRY THOSE PRINTS TO SEWN FELT TO GET A RICH OVERLAY OF MATERIALS. IN LINE WITH HER ONGOING FASCINATION WITH UNDULATING FORMS IN NATURE, THIS TECHNIQUE IS A TRUE EXPRESSION OF HER INTEREST IN SHOWING SHIFTS IN SCALE ACROSS A SURFACE.  THE COLLECTION CONSISTS OF 4 NON-REPEATING PATTERNS; MELT—INSPIRED BY THE MELTING COLORS OF THE SETTING SUN; RAINFALL—INSPIRED BY THE TRANSLUCENT QUALITY OF POURING RAIN; TERRAINS —INSPIRED BY SHIFTING LANDSCAPES, AND BABYLON—INSPIRED BY THE HANGING LINES OF WILLOW TREES. ALL WALLCOVERINGS ARE PRINTED DIGITALLY LOCALLY, WITH ACCENTED FELT DETAILS BY DANIEL TILLMAN. THE “CRACK” KILLIM RUG IS HAND-WOVEN IN INDIA WITH A COTTON, WOOL, AND SARI SILK BLEND. THE CRACK RUG IS INSPIRED BY THE EARTHS SHIFTING CREVASSES, AND IS THE FIRST OF 5 KILIM RUGS TO BE LAUNCHED IN 2018.  copy courtesy of www.jillmalek.com

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

Fuoco, Italian: Fire

con fuoco. : fierily, impetuously —used as a direction in music.

Wikipedia:

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",[1] 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 – RossiniBelliniDonizettiVerdi – 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.
