Judy Ross is a New York–based designer and artist. Traveling in India to work as an independent textile designer, she developed a passion for the centuries-old hand embroidery technique known as chain stitch, used by people in the Kashmir region to embellish shawls with traditional paisley and floral patterns. She lived on a houseboat on Upper Dal Lake while collaborating with the master embroiderers to develop a line of impeccably stitched contemporary wool scarves. From those scarves, her product line has expanded to home textiles: pillows, rugs, fabric by the yard, bedcovers and wall hangings. In 2008, Judy Ross Textiles began producing furniture pieces such as stools, cubes and screens.
Color, detail, materials, texture — all of these elements make Judy Ross' cushions so singular. Enliven a sofa or finish a bed with these hand-printed linen beauties; many feature bold, nature-inspired graphics.
