Twill Textiles was founded in 2004, as a collaborative effort between Suzanne Lovell, a Chicago-based interior design company, and Sam Kasten, an American master handweaver. Suzanne and Sam wanted to create a collection of sophisticated home furnishings textiles that could translate the beauty of traditional, artisanal, hand-woven techniques to machine-woven fabrics. By sharing their mutual talents, they were able to produce a line of 20 fabrics featuring diverse patterns and colors, thoughtfully reinterpreted for mill production. Twill Textiles source its yarns from European mills known for their great quality and environmentally-friendly procedures. At Inside Stores, we carry the complete collection of Twill Textiles fabric, trims and furniture. Please contact us for pricing or product information. Request a quote.
As a result of the great acceptance of the initial collection, Twill also acquired the rights to the Q collection and can now offer new patterns in its catalog. Continuing its collaborative spirit, Twill partnered with renowned screen printing artisan, Peter Fasano, to take this concept in a novel direction. The project started using 4 of the brand's woven patterns and created 6 unique prints to add to the collection. Each pattern is designed and then printed by hand in 5 different colorways on a 100% Belgian linen ground cloth.
Sam Kasten has been producing innovative products since the 1970s, selecting and weaving only the finest materials such as cashmere, linen, mohair, and silk.
