"...the fabric itself; its weave, texture and degree of opacity helps me to determine the most creative outcome"

Carnegie collaborates with Erik Bruce to inspire and intrigue with 4 artisanal fabrication techniques for windows and beyond, available through Erik Bruce Fabrik

By partially deconstructing the weave of the fabric, a delicate line of weft thread is exposed. The technique's name is borrowed from modern architecture referring to the gap created between materials.

This technique cuts the edge of the fabric while rolling it inside a tight purl stitch. A contrasting color thread accentuates the crisp clean line.

A modern technique adds a playful flourish to your window design. The zipper is a stylish solution that allows you to mask or reveal architectural elements in the space.
Rebelliously fashion forward, the Fringe technique whiskers the edge of the fabric like a grazed hem. By not folding and stitching the fabric, it is allowed to hang naturally with elegance.
