CAROLINE Z HURLEY
Caroline Z Hurley is a home-ware company based in Brooklyn, NY.
Caroline is a painter and traveler; she draws inspiration from brush strokes and far-flung bazars. Caroline’s creativity and senses are heightened through travel – she absorbs the culture and color of each city and heads back to her Brooklyn studio to create her collection.
After graduating from RISD Caroline took an inspiring trip to Bali. When she retuned her paintings took the form of textiles and before long her company was born.
Caroline produces all of her products using the cottage industry and has direct relationships with each of her manufacturers. Through her network of skilled manufacturers she works with block printers in New Bedford, ceramicist in North Carolina, quilters in New Jersey and weavers in Peru, Guatemala and Mexico.
Production for Caroline Z Hurley started with a cooperative in New Bedford, MA. She trained these skilled weavers how to block print and now they produce all of Caroline’s block printed pieces.
