This week’s #fabricfriday post is thanks to our lovely friends at Pintura Studio. They just dropped off their new collection and we couldn’t be more in love.
Call the showroom for trade pricing and samples!
Our friend Clare Frost came through the showroom last week with the most amazing batch of vintage and embroidered fabrics: many are collected by Clare in Kabul and embroidered by her team of ladies there.
Each piece holds its own story of an uncharted sojourn, and the exact path these pieces took to land in our hands is something we may never know. They are then brought back to life with delicate, thoughtful hand embellishments by talented craftswomen.
Clare teaches a design course to women in Kabul, Afghanistan. One of her favorite projects is to give the women an assortment of these vintage fabrics and let them loose to design their own unique embroidery patterns.
By working with these women she helps them to support their families, but this process also gives them an outlet for expressing themselves artistically, growing their prodigious talent and feeding their creativity.
Each piece of fabric is unique and sold “as is”. The marks of another life, wear and small discoloration only add to the mystery and integrity of the fabric. The panel sizes range from a single yard to multiple yards, depending on the piece.
A collection of pillows will also become available on The Market very soon, so keep your eyes peeled!

Weaving is an art form that necessitates a close relationship between creativity, technique, and functionality. While seemingly restrictive, it takes a true master of color and vision to produce a handwoven fabric that is both exciting and livable, tactile and refined.
Soraya, our resident master weaver, draws her inspiration from her daily life in this bustling urban landscape we call home. Since she is always busy developing samples for custom projects or new in-house collections, we thought we would take a peak and see what beautiful things she has on the loom this month…
“While impatiently waiting for the train like everyone else in the subway station, I was looking down to see how muddy my shoes had gotten since it was a rainy day and my favorite boots are not so rain friendly. I forgot all about the mud and was instead drawn to the dark grey dirty subway platform, the faded yellow paint there to warn us not to stand to close to the edge and how good it all looked with my current favorite shoes.
When creating a custom swatch, you’re able to design with Soraya using color and texture. Most fun of all, we have an amazing selection of yarn colors and styles in our weaving studio that suit any project. If you’d like to work with her, you can make an appointment through the showroom.
Rue Magazine stopped by for a visit recently, and published a gracious little article about our retail friendly shopping experience. Not a designer? That’s okay! You still have access to our designer fabric, wallpaper, and rug collections.
