Peace Industry proudly presents four new designer collaborations that explore ancient felt making techniques in new and innovative ways for our fall 2017 collections.
All four collections focus on experimentation with newly discovered ancient processes that expand the technology of felt rug making.
The collaborators that helped us bring these collections to life are: Alison Damonte Design of S.F., Disc Interiors of L.A., artist Raha Raissnia of N.Y., and Riley McFerrin of Hinterland in Vancouver, B.C.
Alison Damonte Collection
The Alison Damonte Collection draws inspiration from abstract minimalist painters like Sol Lewitt and Ellsworth Kelly by fusing two geometric forms that overlap to produce unconventional rug shapes, focusing on color, geometry, and the play between hard and blurry lines.
Raha Raissnia Collection
The Raha Raissnia collection introduces a raw and unstructured edge which has a lower profile, perfect for both commercial and residential spaces. In the spirit of Raha’s paintings and hand-made films this collection will only be offered in black and fog.
Disc Interiors Collection
The Disc Interiors collection explores process and texture in a minimal and earthy way, with color palettes inspired by antique Japanese textiles and introduces the use of fringe and felted-in yarns, to create wabi-sabi linear patterns. Felting two colors in one layer, enhances the reversible nature of felt rugs.
The Hinterland collection takes a post-modern turn with Memphis-deco inspired geometric shapes floating on a pale gray field. Accents like a radius curve and asymmetrically applied fringe add playful details.
The Peace Industry for Heath Collection is a capsule collection that includes rugs, baskets and choobs, which take their inspiration from Heath Ceramics’ signature tiles and color patterns. As one of San Francisco’s most beloved makers of crafted goods, Heath Ceramics is a company that we have long admired given our shared commitments to creating well-crafted, sustainable and beautiful products.
