Kravet Launches Fifth Fabric Collection with Museum of New Mexico



Kravet is pleased to announce its fifth collaboration with Museum of New Mexico. For this fabric collection, the Museum tells the story of its unique place as a crossroads of international trade and culture through fabrics inspired by the Museum’s renowned textile, basketry and ceramic collections.

Inspiration for these modern interpretations of traditional designs was drawn primarily from small-scale patterns and embroideries in the 25,000-piece textile and dress collection at the Museum of International Folk Art. Iconic Native American textile and ceramic pieces from the Museum of Indian Arts & Culture also influenced many of the collection’s designs. These museums comprise two of the Museum of New Mexico’s four cultural institutions.

Color and texture inspirations came from diverse mediums such as pottery, basketry, textiles and cut paper patterns. The result is 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.

Textile designer and Museum of International Folk Art donor Alexander Girard quoted an Italian proverb when asked why he collected the folk art of the world’s artisans: “Tutto il mondo e paes” or “the whole world is hometown.”

“In partnering with us and by choosing such a broad spectrum of Museum textiles for inspiration, Kravet too is saying, ‘The whole world is hometown’ and that there are no foreigners,” said Pamela Kelly, Vice President of Licensing and Brand Management for the Museum.

Santa Fe has been an international hub of culture and commerce for centuries, as well as a creative haven for artists, writers, collectors and others drawn to the region’s bohemian lifestyle, spacious landscapes and rich cultural traditions. This eclectic ensemble of textiles embodies this creative approach to living – collected, worldly and modern.
