Meet the Designer: Kate Blairstone
We are excited to welcome Kate Blairstone, the newest artist to join us on The Textile District!! Kate's collection includes bold, vibrant floral designs, colorful serape style stripes, and original textures to our online catalog! Whether you are looking to refresh your home and get ready for fall, or create key pieces for your fall wardrobe, we hope you enjoy exploring the new designs in our online fabric catalog!
Kate Blairstone creates from her home studio in Portland, Oregon, where her family, kitchen and garden are always within reach. Her designs are inspired by the abundant plant life of the Pacific Northwest, Portland's culinary scene, and pattern as an expression of identity, heritage and place.
Kate's work reflects the belief that we are deserving of color and pattern in our lives, and that they can be harnessed to tell our stories, create connection, and inspire joy in our homes and communities. Her large scale, organic designs are painted with Indian ink on layers of tissue paper, a process reminiscent of traditional screen printing. In addition to fabrics, Kate also creates custom wall coverings for commercial clients, and has a line of residential papers with Manolo Walls.
So let's get started!!
