On the twentieth anniversary of his collaboration with Maharam, British fashion designer Paul Smith explores his signature interest in color and stripes across three textiles engineered for indoor/outdoor use.
Reflecting Smith’s precise eye for hue and proportion, Concord Stripe reimagines slim vertical stripes through an eclectic color vocabulary. Metered Stripe explores stripes of varying widths and densities within a gridded pattern reminiscent of needlepoint. Ribbed Weave—Smith’s first solid textile with Maharam—offers subtle tonal mixing across slubbed texture.
A plush velvet whose amplified wales serve as both texture and pattern, Passage offers contract performance.
The design studio sought to develop a widely usable velvet that is durable and bleach cleanable but also rich in depth and luminosity.
Felix builds upon the design studio’s wool offering with a tricolor basket construction woven at an ISO 14001-certified, solar-powered facility.
Felix’s yarns are spun, dyed, warped, and woven at a single facility to minimize the environmental impact of standard textile transportation.
Since its launch in 1984, Maharam’s Tek-Wall series has brought material and structural experimentation to durable, cleanable woven wallcoverings.
