Schumacher Fabric : Caroline Z Hurley’s Minimal Collection 2018

Minimalism At It’s Finest

Schumacher Fabric’s newest collection comes from a Brooklyn based artist, Caroline Z Hurley. This talented young individual started off as a full time preschool teacher in New York. It wasn’t until she took a trip to Indonesia it changed everything.
I was block printing in my studio and started incorporating these pieces into my paintings. I began making a couple block-printed pieces for my home and sharing them with friends and family. Later, a shop reached out to me.
Hurley’s collection with Schumacher Fabric is composed of thoughtful and artistic geometric simplicity. She uses pops of color to create interest and meaning within these symbolic patterns.

Patterns within Schumacher Fabric’s Caroline Z Hurley Collection:

  • Cedar Tree Neck
  • Great Rock Sheer
  • Great Rock Embroidery
  • Icehouse
  • Joshua Tree
  • Menemsha
  • Oaxaca
  • Overlapping Dashes
  • Overlapping Triangles
  • Sepiessa
  • Tashmoo
  • Tiasquam
  • Tiasquam Weave

CEDAR TREE NECK

Cedar Tree Neck is an excellent minimal arrangement of vertical dashes with varying spacing. The negative space create a loose checkered effect that doesn’t feel forced but rather creates interest.

GREAT ROCK SHEER & EMBROIDERY

Schumacher Fabric’s Great Rock is a simplistic pattern consisting of dotted lines and curves placed to create a visually stunning arrangement. Sometimes less is more, especially with a geometric print like this one. Embroidery is available now, just click the pattern to check it out.

ICEHOUSE

Icehouse consists of vertical and horizontal line fragments in contrasting colors. Available in a light cream backdrop with navy and white, or the neutral beige backdrop with black and white.

JOSHUA TREE

Joshua Tree, as pictured at the beginning of the article, is a hand block-printed pattern portraying the different cycles of the moon. Inspired by nights spent camping under the stars, available in Natural with pops of primary colors, or the Indigo imitating the calming night sky.

MENEMSHA

At a distance, Menemsha looks like a plain heathered pattern of assorted earth tone neutrals. Upon a closer look, this pattern contains micro brush strokes of white in varying directions.

OAXACA

Oaxaca is a state in southern Mexico known for its indigenous cultures. Its capital city of the same name is noted for colonial buildings often made of green volcanic stone. This pattern portrays the varying heights of the city’s skyline.

OVERLAPPING DASHES & TRIANGLES

Overlapping Dashes mixes camel and white minimal line arrangements that overlap in the center for contrast. Overlapping Triangles combines black triangles in the background with a smaller white triangle placed on top for a grey neutral space in between.

SEPIESSA

Sepiessa is based on a painting by Caroline Z Hurley that showcases over-sized gestural brush strokes.

TASHMOO

Tashmoo is a vertical stripe pattern with micro triangles and dashed lines.

TIASQUAM

Originally handpainted by Caroline Z Hurley on paper, Tiasquam imitates the art of hand-blocking with its subtle variations throughout the pattern.

TIASQUAM WEAVE

A woven rendition of the Tiasquam pattern pictured above.     Caroline Z Hurley & Schumacher hope to bring life back into the textile rich city of New Bedford as it originally was before the great depression.
