THE SAM KASTEN COLLECTION

With clientale that continues to reach the highest order of the interior design industry, celebrated craftsman Sam Kasten has been a master of the art of hand weaving since he began in the 1970s.  Selectively using the purest and most fine materials such as silk, linen, mohair, and cashmere, Kasten’s fabrics reveal simple woven structures that resonate with the subtle complexities of the yarns he deftly combines for a timeless and elegant textile.  Over the years, designers and architects such as Billy Baldwin, David Easton, Thierry Despont, Victoria Hagan, and Calvin Tsao have collaborated with Kasten to obtain exquisite fabrics that they know only his mastery can create.

The challenge to translate his hand woven fabrics into industrially produced textiles led Kasten to interior designer Suzanne Lovell.  With a shared enthusiasm for the art of hand weaving, Lovell and Kasten combined their talents to create Twill Textiles, a collection of sophisticated fabrics inspired by the artisan craft. 

Today, Twill’s Sam Kasten Collection continues his legacy by honoring the ancient weaving craft with Modernist sensibilities, maintaining honesty to materials, and celebrating unadorned simplicity.
