A collaboration between the Los Angeles-based creative studio Commune Design and Texan textile house Kufri, the Utopia collection is comprised of 26 energetic and playful patterns. Inspired by elements in the natural world as well as traditional weaving techniques, the hand-woven fabrics include:
Catalina Stripe, which features shifting bands of colour that move from solid to shaded and back to solid. Suitable for upholstery, drapes and soft furnishings, it is available in five colourways.
Alternating rectangles and squares create a textured surface on Malmo Check, lending the fabric an intriguing visual style. Made from a combination of wool and cotton, this design is available in three colourways.
An update to the classic pattern, Inverness Herringbone is made from a blend of linen and cotton and rendered in three contemporary colour combinations.
Shiga Brick takes cues from the traditions of heirloom Japanese hand-weaving and wabi-sabi simplicity. Made from silk and cotton threads on a linen ground, it has a subtle fluidity of colour and shade. Shiga Brick is available in three colourways.
With light and dark undulating lines, Tahoe Ripple has a lively movement suggestive of the moon’s reflection on water. This 100 percent cotton fabric is available in two colourways.
An asymmetrical plaid that pays homage to weaving techniques in the Shaker community, Shaker Plaid reinterprets the traditional pattern into intersecting blocks of varying sizes. Made from linen and silk, it is available in three colourways.
All of the fabrics in the Utopia collection are handmade in India and are suitable for upholstery, drapes and soft furnishings.
