Textile design and manufacturing firm Valdese Weavers and adaptable workspace design and manufacturing firm Haworth have announced the winners of their first ever “Stitch Me” textile design contest. In April, the two commercial-design companies invited fellow designers and architects located in North Carolina’s Triangle Area to create an original textile that displays a repetitive pattern. The submissions would then be judged based on materiality, creativity, and application. Of the eight submissions, the judges, who included Valdese Weaver’s Chief Creative Officer Laura Levinson, chose four winning designs and one grand-prize winner.
