Tesuque textiles collection: The Process and Story
The idea behind the Tesuque (pronounced teh-su-keh) collection began a few years ago over many trips to my spirit place, New Mexico. Each time I would go, I would gather books, art, images and ideas, which turned into sketches, which then turned into loose patterns.
The whole collection is meant to feel imperfect and earthy, just like the raw landscapes and beauty of New Mexico. The ground cloth, linen, for the collection is specifically handwoven by our weavers to give it texture. Then patterns got hand-carved into woodblocks, which then got handprinted onto the handwoven linen.
