In ancient times, the Silk Road connected the Mediterranean with the Far East. This winding route was integral to sharing cultures, philosophies and hand-made goods – especially textiles. The Trade Route Collection re-interprets cultural influences into upholsteries that look at home anywhere in the world.
Each pattern is inspired by a geographic region and what it's known for – the intricate embroidery detail and vibrant colors of Morocco ... the hand-dyed effects of Japanese Shibori ... the look and feel of Ireland's Donegal tweed. The Trade Route Collection is worldly yet relatable. Take the road less traveled.
The Trade Route Collection takes classic patterns such as stripes, tweeds, herringbones and geometrics in new directions – blending natural yarns ... adding sheen ... playing with scale ... and exploring color.
