Process to product in 10 steps: Wool Fleck and Melange Check

In honor of our Shared Ground Collection launch today with @luumtextiles, we are proud to present a peek into the @tickstudionyc method of woven fiber design, from process to product in 10 steps. Working with a woman-owned mill engrained in European fiber recycling traditions, we designed Wool Fleck and Melange Check using 100% pre and post consumer recycled garment waste from wool, polyester and acrylic. We started by weaving the prototypes for these styles on the loom at Tick Studio and colored these coordinating styles that quite literally share the same grounds, providing at least two coordinates of Wool Fleck for every Melange Check plaid colorway.

Reinterpreted Motifs, Reinvigorated Spaces: SHARED GROUND COLLECTION FOR LUUM HAS LAUNCHED!

In the Shared Ground collection, sustainability and modern craft converge to reveal our similar traditions and shared responsibility to each other and the Earth. This collection of four textiles by Suzanne Tick is inspired by the origins of textile making, reinterpreting heritage weave structures and foundational fibers spanning many centuries and cultures.

Emphasizing recycled and renewable fibers with Melange Check and Wool Fleck and multipurpose-use applications with Complect and Cult Classic, Shared Ground’s textiles literally share common grounds, borrowing motifs from one other during development on the Tick Studio handloom. Classic plaid, plain weave and twill weaves are realized in wool and wool-like materials, facilitating reconnection to our roots, providing an essential need for our time.

Goodbye 2021, Hello 2022!

Take a peek at Tick Studio’s 2021 highlights in review. Thank you all for a wonderful year of firsts and new experiences as we navigate the changing landscape. From bringing the industry’s first postconsumer recycled biodegradable polyester textiles to market for Luum (Grid State and Ecotone), to launching sustainable architectural film for Skyline Glass for workplace safety and privacy (Obscura Collection), to industry talks with Interior Design’s EIC Cindy Allen, to group volunteering and communal weaving projects, we look forward to even more exciting projects that 2022 has in store for us.
