Starting with that first sketch and ending with those important finishing touches, a glimpse at how it all comes together...

Design

EXPERIMENTING

Sketching, gathering inspiration, painting—this is the fun stuff (AKA what gets lost in the development of commercial products).

  Brooklyn, New York

CREATING THE ARTWORK

Here’s where we get down to business defining/scaling our artwork and finally sending them off.

  Brooklyn, New York

SAMPLING

It takes a bit of trial and error to get things right, this step allows us to assess each product in a more finalized form.

  Brooklyn, New York

We put a lot of care and thought into our products with the goal of inspiring creativity in your home.

Surface Transformation

HAND DYEING

We use low-impact fiber reactive dyes, which produce a rich, long-lasting shade. All those beautiful variations in color couldn’t be achieved any other way.

SCREEN PRINTING

This step is handled by a family-owned and operated mill that has been in the biz for over 75 years. Vat dyes are thickened with gum and water before printing (this just means the result is soft).

  Westerly, Rhode Island

DIGITAL PRINTING

Eco-friendly, this process helps us replicate our hand-painted designs on a large scale using less water and paper than alternative methods. Prints are transferred onto, also eco-friendly, Belgian linen from Libeco.

  West Chester, PA & Litchfield, CN

Utilizing traditional textile techniques and materials means there are subtle nuances and variations in each product—it’s this uniqueness that we love so much.

Beyond Print

WEAVING

Dobby and jacquard looms recreate our patterns with yarn. Fun fabric fact: “dobby” was taken from the term “draw boy,” which described weavers’ helpers back in the day.

  Chicago, Illinois and Jessup, Pennsylvania

EMBROIDERING

In India a team translates our prints and patterns via CAD and hand embroidery. What’s the deal with “CAD”? It produces a hand-done look on a large scale (you could call it a sewing machine with magical skills).

  Delhi, India

SEWING

We work with local sewers in our building in Industry City, Brooklyn as well as in New York City’s Garment District. Being nearby allows us valuable face time to get things just right.

  Brooklyn, New York

Pattern isn’t just about the surface, but can be developed through the structure.

Final Details

PERFECTING OUR PILLOWS

We use a lofty 25/75 down feather insert which offers the right balance of softness and support. Since there’s nothing better than a pillow that feels full, we make ours 2” larger than our covers.

  Brooklyn, New York

THE LITTLE THINGS

Our pillows are serged to protect from fraying, and we leave enough seam allowances for repairs. All our zippers are American made, from YKK.

  Atlanta, Georgia

WAREHOUSE & SHIPPING

Orders ship from Pennsylvania. To eliminate waste we reuse and recycle our boxes. While we do currently use plastic to protect from the elements, we are looking at more eco-friendly options—stay tuned.

  West Chester, Pennsylvania

It's the little things, as they say, and small details are what define “luxury” to us.
