We had the great fun to work with David on his first line of woven Jacquard Ribbons ( see the whole collection HERE) to coordinate with his fabric collections by Free Spirit: curious Nature and Seven Wonders.
Here we made a patchwork pillow to show them off!
David Butler is the artist behind the folk modern brand PARSON GRAY. As a designer who's clientele has included Cirque du Soleil, Ralph Lauren, Hollister, Abercrombie & Fitch as well as Rolling Stone, Timberland & American Eagle, David has brought his tactile brand of graphic storytelling and modern heritage to all that he creates. When not touring with his band Black Owls, he weaves Parson Gray into products for home, fashion & lifestyle. He works from his Ohio studio with fabled fabric designer wife Amy Butler.
Curious Nature" is the first collection of prints from Parson Gray. The collection is a folk modern interpretation of natural elements. It weaves together a balance of hand-drawn patterns inspired by Japanese indigo and mid-century fine art. The palette is grounded in richly muted nature tones evoking deep forest and dark ocean balanced by bone ivory and oyster grays. Parson Gray's "Seven Wonders" is being interpreted to quilting/fashion cotton by FreeSpirit Fabric. www.freespiritfabric.com
