In conjunction with the opening of Salvage at Gensler Chicago, Suzanne offered designers a one day weaving workshop. After receiving a tour of the show the designers started weaving away on their lap looms with all sorts of non-traditional materials like metallic paper, dry cleaning refuse and old balloons. A great experience overall, Suzanne had a blast!

"Crisitna works with artist and textile designer Suzanne Tick; this was the first piece she ever sent Grajales, to entice her into a studio visit (it worked). Grajales has a particular soft spot for the genre, anyway. “Textiles have always been a big passion in my life,” she says. “I don’t understand why it’s so difficult for other people to see the beauty behind textiles. We’ve been successful so far in showing their relevance, but it’s not easy. We love the complexity, though, and the historial aspect, that’s why we keep working with them.”
