Relativity Textiles has recently launched our website and product line! But we need a little help getting our product onto the shelves and onto the walls of our future clients' homes.
Relativity was born from the idea that we can have an authentic connection to the history of global textiles. Erin Chlaghmo, our founder, has spent the last year building a portfolio of hand drawn images that are inspired by traditional rugs, tile designs and printed fabrics from around the globe. Erin's deep interest in textile techniques leads her to share their amazing beauty with others.
Relativity is devoted to the handmade as an idea that we can connect to the way things are made again, and support an economy of makers and artisans. Much like people who keep bees in order to make their own honey or brew their own beer, we want to know where our products come from. Relativity is reviving the dying art form of screen printing to make our papers.
Having worked in the wallpaper industry and as a teacher of screen printing for fabric at one of the best art schools in the country, Erin has a deep understanding of the process of patterns, repetition and process. Designing specifically for the mode of production has made the papers and fabrics more efficient to produce and easier to install.
Marketing our finished product to the world is the next step. We believe Relativity Textiles could become a leader in the industry. But, it is through proper photography & staging, marketing efforts, sample distribution and a fancy website that people will be able to notice and promote the brand.
This is where you come in.
Your donation will help support the fabrication of sample books, photo shoots for the finished products, the last finishing touches on our e-commerce website, the production of four short videos that will introduce us, the production of our first print runs and a quaint PR campaign in the upcoming months. Join us in supporting an exciting brand that values the world's history of fabrics and their makers as well as emerging designers.
Free hugs and high fives to friends for supporting! Plus a mention in our upcoming video about the Kickstarter campaign and the next steps. I know it's hard to reach into your pocket and give to someone else's cause. This pledge means you support what we're doing and we are so happy to have you along on the ride!
