In 2004 Suzanne Lovell, principal of her namesake Chicago-based interior design firm, and Sam Kasten, one of America's foremost handweavers, pooled their respective talents to create a unique textile company. The goal was to create a machine woven collection without losing the essence and subtle complexities of Sam’s custom textiles. Thus was born Twill, a collection of sophisticated fabrics inspired by the art of handweaving.
After much success with the original collection, Twill partnered with a talented screen printing artisan in 2010 to bring new life to some classic patterns by translating them into hand printed designs. More recently Twill acquired the rights to the Q collection and is proud to now offer 14 of their beautiful fully sustainable patterns.
As the collection evolves, the goal to create beautiful textiles that emulate both the quality and aesthetic of artisan craft remains the same. Yet it is the power of collaborative creativity that keeps this dream alive.
