About

Hudson and Kings is a Brooklyn based lifestyle design firm that celebrates New York City. We create designs that capture the essence as well as the lively culture of this unique borough. Our cushions vary in design. We have our signature embossed style which makes the graphics come to life through the texture of the material. Our goal is providing customers with a piece of Brooklyn and New York they take with them and enjoy daily as a part of their life.  

Design & Material

The spirit of New Yorkers is reminiscent of the stark contrast of black and white. Black is edgy and harsh, while white is comforting. We kept this in mind when choosing materials: bonded jersey. The color of bonded jersey portrays strong side of us, yet the soft texture speaks of our gentler side.

This combination is fused into Hudson and Kings’ signature embossing and its design. This allows the urban vibe of Brooklyn to stand out.

Emboss

Embossing/Debossing alters the surface of a material by providing a three-dimensional or raised effect on selected areas. 

The procedure requires the use of two dies: one that is raised and one that is recessed. The dies fit into each other so that when a material is pressed between them, the raised die forces the stock into the recessed die and creates the embossed impression. 

A specific level of pressure is applied to the dies in order to squeeze the fibers of the material, which results in a semi-permanently/permanently raised area in the material. When the dies are produced, a die maker engraves the desired image into several metal plates, which are the embossing dies for use on an embossing press.

 A thorough understanding the process will enable a more successful result. Generally, embossing is the process most often employed to attract attention or convey a high quality textural contrast in relation to the surrounding area of the material.

 Project Time Line

Risks and challenges

Using a unique technique for embossing the material has provided a huge challenge. We have had to experiment with different mold styling, temperatures, pressure, and duration of time to get our products to where they are today. Each roll of fabric requires distinct problem solving due to blending of yarn to weaving.
With over 20 years of experience in the fashion industry having worked with materials such as knit fabric, all weights and constructions of woven fabric, genuine leather, faux leather, real fur, faux fur, see-through silk chiffon, 3mm thick bonded leather, and several others provided us with a wide range of knowledge. All of this experience gives us the ability to overcome challenges we face as well as problem-solving skills to deal with unpredictable incidents that arise.
