Altuzarra and Etsy partner for limited-edition home decor collection
Fashion designer Joseph Altuzarra has partnered with craft marketplace Etsy for a limited-edition collection of home decor items.
The Altuzarra x Etsy collection features a variety of home goods designed and crafted in partnership between Altuzarra, whose designs have been worn be celebrities from Rihanna to Nicole Kidman, and eight Etsy sellers from around the globe.
Items from the collection include candlestick holders made with French ceramics artist Madelon Galland; woven cotton-and-leather coasters and placements created with New Jersey-based fiber artist Damaris Kovach; pet beds made with Brooklyn-based pet shop Laylo; crocheted lace and leather stones made by lacemaker Monica Johnson; clay vases made with designer Sara Paloma; and woven baskets made with Israeli basketmaker Nuni Yavnai.
Several items from the collection feature a sustainable twist, including throw pillows made with British Colombia-based seller Marika Rowe and notebooks made with designer Stephanie Lunn, both crafted from leftover fabric from the Altuzarra spring/summer 2016 fashion show.
Altuzarra, himself an Etsy shopper, acknowledged that the collaboration is a testament to his passion for considered interior design.
“When I design a collection, I like to imagine the interior space of the person I’m designing for,” said the designer, who founded his eponymous womenswear brand in 2008.
“It’s almost like a movie set; it’s all part of the narrative.”
“With the uncertainty we live with daily, being surrounded by objects and furnishings that give you a sense of comfort is so important,” he continued.
"I wanted to create a collection that would bring people peace, joy, and happiness.”
Available now through Etsy.com, prices from the collection range from $12 to $1,400 for the one-of-a-kind, artisan-made home goods.
