From Left to Right: Hart, Rebecca Atwood, Minna, Fayce
Being based in both New York City and New York’s Hudson Valley has its perks, one of our favorites being that we can kick a rock and hit a great designer. Today we’ll be featuring 4 local textile artists you oughta know.

1. HART

Known to experiment with local flora for dye and fauna for yarn, Jamie Israelow weaves soothing thoughtful pieces we want to get tactile with. Her curiosity and focus on the quality of her working materials guides her creative process, taking time and care to thoughtfully weave her pillows, floor coverings, and art. The result is grounded, yet luxurious. We met Jamie through the mercer INTERIOR family, but she frequently showcases her work around New York City and State; follow her on instagram to catch her beautiful products in-person or contact her directly to commission her for a unique-to-you piece.

Fellow RISD graduate Rebecca Atwood has been skyrocketing to pattern superstardom for a while now. Her patterns are born out of sketches, water color painting, and print play and are available in a variety of surfaces. Since this is a textile post, we recommend exploring her bedding or fabric by the yard for recovering your favorite piece! You might see big brands copying her aesthetic more and more as we have, well now you know the origin story. We find a mature playfulness and femininity in her work and have used one of her patterns in a recent project to keep a sitting room from appearing too self-serious (more to come on that).

3. MINNA

Oh Minna, you’re so fine, you’re so fine and your store smells like heaven. Although fresh and thoughtful, Minna rugs and pillows have the air of things that have been around for ages. It might have something to do with the fact that founder Sara Berks pulls inspiration from traditional craft and vintage textiles with designs executed by “master weavers and artisan collectives in Mexico, Guatemala, and Uruguay.” With over 30,000 instagram followers, one might not expect such a humble, minimalist shop amongst the often cluttered antique shops of Hudson, NY, but it’s brightness and collaborative nature made it a shop we didn’t want to leave.

4. FAYCE Textiles

FAYCE Textiles was a booth on our must-see list at the 2017 Field + Supply and founder Kim Rosen did not disappoint. We fell in love with the quiet elegance of her patterns, which are available as fabric by the yard and wallpaper (including grasscloth!). She may not be New York-based like the rest, but she is still rock-kicking distance from the Hudson Valley in Massachusetts and her work is too beautiful to exclude.
