Celebrating the creative process of groundbreaking artist and educator Nick Cave, the Nick Cave Collection layers pattern and multiple craft techniques to establish a new point of view on the textile experience.
Like Nick Cave’s Soundsuits, Guise is created by intricately layering multiple techniques and materials. Space-dyed, twisted novelty, and chenille yarns combine to create a top layer that pairs with a tafetta-like ground fabric that has a subtle sheen.
Complex and energetic, Vert is a multicolor, variegated full-width repeat that captures the blend of perfection and imperfection that Nick Cave’s work celebrates.
Puff, a cozy faux shearling with loft, is available in a palette of thirteen colors based on Nick Cave’s rainbow-colored synthetic hair Soundsuit.
Inspired by one of Nick Cave’s Soundsuits, the upholstery Doily is created by using both modern technology and hand craftsmanship. Woven and embroidered elements are blended, resulting in a stunning and multidimensional surface.
Exaggerated scale sets this wallcovering apart from traditional florals. Mural-like, Big Floral offers movement, dimensionality and depth. It is digitally printed on a bleach cleanable, PVC-free ground with Type II properties and has a beaded texture emboss.
Forest wallcovering uses a special ground technique that allows for an extraordinary intensity of color, capturing the vibrancy and abstract vertical movement of the art that inspired it: Nick Cave’s installation Architectural Forest.
Inspired by Nick Cave’s metal and bead tondo sculptures, Wire features a digitally printed textured fur rendered in matte ink on a metallic mylar ground. The printing allows just enough of the metallic base to show through to emulate the luster of the original.
Nick Cave visits antique markets across the country to source one-of-a-kind objects for use in his artworks, including vintage buttons that have embellished several Soundsuits. Playing with this idea, Button drapery is digitally printed on Trevira CS Polyester. The pattern features an organic gradation of light to dark.
Until is a beautiful organic drapery inspired by one of Nick Cave’s massive beaded web-like installations. This two-toned open drapery coordinates well with opaque window fabrics for enhanced color play and visual privacy.
Heard drapery speaks to the meticulous method of hand sewing and motion in Nick Cave’s work. Five ribbon colors are cut, applied, and sewn ribbon by ribbon and row by row.
