Rare Earth is a collection of four upholstery and multipurpose textiles by
Suzanne Tick that celebrate nature’s color and texture. Using recycled,
renewable, local and biodegradable fiber technology, Rare Earth displays
a new way forward with a lighter footprint.
As we recalibrate to new ways of working, living and communicating,
we observe the importance of nature in our everyday lives. Moreover, we
reflect on the physical impact humans have made on the environment from
overconsumption, and the physical impact the changing environment has
on us in return in the form of climate change.
In the collection, we explore shapes that mirror migration maps, agricultural
outlines and geological boundaries stemming from human activity. Bright
synthetics and natural hues work together, embodying the balance of nature
and technology working together. Textures resemble patina, symbolizing
movement and the passage of time. Bold colors derived from nature sparkle
like raw minerals in the sunshine and soft hues glow like the moon.
