Graymarket Design

Textile Collaborator
Frankfort, Kentucky

“I had traveled a lot and encountered such amazing fabrics, so I wanted to find cooperatives who would work with me to create beautiful, classic textiles with a modern feel.”

For Hallie, the world is a pretty small place. With degrees in international relations and textile design, it’s no surprise that Hallie’s fascinated with the traditions of crafters and makers all over the not-so-wide world. After some time on the road, working closely with artisans using traditional techniques, she hit on a brilliant idea for collaboration: She’d use her design smarts to create fresh, modern textile patterns then collaborate with artisans in India, Peru and the like to create them using traditional techniques. It’s fresh, digital textile design translated by the hands of masterful printers and weavers.
