Liz Robb

 

Liz Robb is a Los Angeles-based artist who knows her way around textiles. While creating each of her collections Robb reaches for linen, merino, cotton, porcelain, various earth pigments, found objects, and beads among other materials. She works on and off the loom, creates in wildly varying sizes, and makes some of her own dyes. (If you listen closely, you can hear me bowing down.)

Caitlin T. McCormack

 

Philadelphia-based artist Caitlin T. McCormack creates some truly gnarly skeletons, first by stiffening up-cycled textiles and then crocheting with them to create brittle bone-like structures. Once finished, she sets each piece against a black or white backdrop or inside a glass case, to further achieve the desired macabre effect.

TsuruBride AKA Meghan Willis

 

TsuruBride AKA Meghan Willis has been sewing since the age of 6. Making clothes for her Barbie led to a degree in fashion design and a career in the apparel industry. To keep that creative spark alive, Meghan spends evenings exploring the art of undressing, movement, and sensuality through her embroidery. All of her textile art is stitched on linen unless otherwise noted, while leather appliques are machine stitched before being hand painted with acrylics.

Tammy Kanat

 

That’s it, I want to be Tammy Kanat when I grow up. I’m amazed that after 11 years of Design Crush I have yet to feature her incredible weavings – it’s clearly time to remedy that. Kanat is a Melbourne-based textile artist who is constantly practicing innovation through her designs. Each piece feels intuitive, organic, and original, and I can’t help but smile when I look at one.

Caroline Kaufman‘s tactile treasures are based on found beauty and the quirkiness of small treasures, her garments are known for their experimental textiles, hand painted prints, use of color, and all around playfulness. So much personality!

The Boucharouite Project

 

The Boucharouite Project is a collection of rugs by CALLA that feature workmanship, creativity, and resourcefulness. It all began when Paris-based designer Calla Haynes was inspired to seek out artisans in Morocco to explore the space between European luxury and berber craft. Boucharouite rugs are traditionally handmade from old clothes and scrap fabrics, and Calla was determined to find a useful reuse for her large collection of fabrics. Cotton, wool, silk, crepe, and jersey textiles are printed with her original designs, and the resulting collection of thirteen one of a kind rugs speak for themselves.
