2017 Collection

Painted Plains Hides

2017 - In context collection

Throughout time, patterns have served as a meaningful archaeological tool. They decorate and communicate. They are functional.  They are symbolic. And above all, they tell a story.

IN CONTEXT tells our story of exploring the dynamic tapestry of surfaces, textures, and colors in the city around us. Thick peeling layers of paint over old brick walls offer remnants of a rich past.  Worn stair treads provide visual cues on how to navigate our way.  While grids of scaffolding over glass high-rises build a narrative for what’s to come. Woven together, these patterns create a visual story and record of our lives in the city. 

These hides are designed to be used as rugs, wall hangings and upholstery.

The Painted Plains collection utilizes whole hides and bold graphics to create a modern juxtaposition between material and pattern. Water-based stain penetrates the surface of the hide for a durable finish and beautiful patina. Each rug features our signature stamped logo and has a naturally unique outline shape.
