PatternPeople & TanaBana
I see pattern…
at PRINTSOURCE in ny!
As you may know, I was lucky enuf to get to attend the textile show described as “The Premier Market of Surface and Textile Design in the USA” called Printsource New York. This is a show I have been dying to go to for years. I dream of having a booth one day with my own patterns and designs. Until then, I went to collect content for I See Pattern and to attend the trend seminars for work at Pacific Legwear. The inspiration was endless and the seminars were full of trend forecasting information. All in all, the trip was successful! This will be one of 3 posts from the show. I, also, have a post dedicated to pattern i saw on the streets of NY. So stay tuned!
The first company that was nice enuf to allow me to take some pictures of their booth and prints is PatternPeople. This is a Surface Design Studio that is based in Portland, Oregon. I have been following this company for a while. In the last 3 or so years, I have watched this company grow into the successful studio that it is today. PatternPeople has really made a name for themselves in the Textile world. Check out their website here. And follow them on twitter and facebook. They are always posting great things about fashion and pattern!
This is Bekah. She is the Sales Agent that was representing PatternPeople at PrintSource. Very nice and cool girl. :)
The second company I wanted to share with yall is Tana Bana Design Services. Tana Bana is a full service Textile Design Studio in the suburbs of New York City, in Morristown, New Jersey. This company has many beautiful prints for womenswear to offer. Check them out here!
I hope you enjoyed these companies. It was really challenging to get booths to agree to me taking pictures of their work, which I totally understand. I got a lot of “NO WAYs” so I am thankful to the companies that were open to sharing. I know I love to learn by seeing and hearing about what goes on in the inside of a company. And for those of you who are looking to work for a Textile Studio, here are two great ones to look into! I will be covering 4 other companies. So, I’ll see ya sooner than later!
