As part of Parachute's minimalist-inspired fall collection, the home brand known especially for its bedding and textiles has just released a new collaboration with Tappan Collective, an art resource that connects collectors with artists around the globe. The collaboration marks Parachute's first foray into the art world, and consists of one limited edition print called "Spending the Night in a Different Bed (Venice, California)," made by Tappan-exclusive artist Ethan Caflisch.
The limited edition art prints were actually made with fabric from Parachute's linen bedding that is mounted on cotton paper, and each piece is individually sewn with the added detail of a tiny red stitch in each corner.
In an interview on Parachute's blog, Caflisch talked about the process of creating the prints, noting that there was a "natural synergy" between his work and the brand, and that the collaboration—and use of linen for the project—just made sense.
"We both work with textiles and care about material, place and space–it was an obvious pairing that made the design process nearly seamless," Caflisch explained. "From there I met with the design team at Parachute and we nerded out on materials. Linen became the obvious choice after seeing their fabrics first-hand and studying how each material looked, felt, moved and explored light."
The prints are available for purchase on Parachute's website, and come in two sizes: 8x10, which retails for $289, and 11x14 which retails for $449.
