This collection of weaves was inspired by the Kravet brand "Museum of New Mexico"
This was a Jacquard weaving collection that was inspired by the Kravet Brand "Museum of New Mexico."
Older target market. This collection uses a more sophisticated color pallete.
Rich colors came from the crisp blue sky and red earth of the Santa Fe landscape.
To create a cohesive collection that goes well with the Kravet Brand chosen.
Color and texture inspirations came from diverse mediums such as pottery, basketry, textiles and cut paper patterns, resulting in rich textures and pops of vivid colors that mimic the crisp blue sky, the red earth and an array of the complementary hues, both hot and cool, so often identified with the beautiful Santa Fe landscape. This eclectic ensemble of textiles embodies this creative approach to living – collected, worldly and modern.
BREAKING DOWN THE PROCESS
Next, I took from the inspiration and created motifs.
I made these motifs on the computer using photoshop, and then created them into prints using Lectra Kaledo Print. I chose to keep my motifs geometric to go with the Museum of New Mexico Collection.
Using a variety of motifs, I created multiple prints, some that vary in color-ways and size. I created this collection for home furnishing products.
Texture mapping helps visualize what the prints will look like on end products.
