Based in Catskill, NY, artist Richard Saja focus­es on cre­at­ing inter­fer­ences” of the for­mal pat­terns of French toiles through embroi­dery. Saja makes con­cep­tu­al­ly com­pelling art­works draw­ing upon diverse inspi­ra­tion, from mon­sters and clowns to orna­men­tal design and bio-hazards.

The brand’s online shop con­tains a daz­zling array of vibrant col­ors and graph­ic pat­terns that are designed in New York and eth­i­cal­ly hand­wo­ven in Ethiopia, like these Harar wall hang­ings that also dou­ble as bed scarves.
