We’re sure you’ve spotted these beautiful pillows by now! But did you know they were a part of our Archive NY collection?
Archive NY is a Brooklyn based home textile collection founded in 2014 by Amira Marion.
Growing up in a home full of Guatemalan textiles collected by her parents during trips there in the 1970s, Amira’s love for textiles found a natural direction, interpreting Guatemalan traditional motifs and weaving method for her collection.
“At Archive NY, we start our design process by hunting down antique & increasingly rare fabric samples, illustrations and photos of beautiful handwoven textiles. We then reconnect with the original artisan group associated with each design.
Our philosophy is to honor the integrity of Maya culture & heritage: We carefully preserve each original textile, pattern, and design to archive Maya artisanal craft techniques while committing ourselves to Fair Trade principles.”
