Behind the Design

New Japanese-Inspired Textiles from Zak + Fox

NYC textile designer Zak Profera has a thing for antique kimonos (“I've been collecting old kimono stencils, called 'Katagami,' for a few years now,” he says), and his newest collection is inspired by their intricate patterns. “I bought one initially because I thought it was much more unusual than what we typically see in Japanese textile pattern. Then I got hooked; I'm always on the hunt for the ones feel 'unplaceable.' Some skew very tribal, each is like a silk screen, one color per stencil, so when you are viewing them individually, there can be something beautiful and abstract in the reduction of elements.”

For ordering information, go to Zak+Fox, and if you're in NYC visit him at his new showroom at 611 Broadway, Suite 511 (“by appointment or chance”).
