The Full Bloom collection is a collaboration between Tamar Mogendorff and Edie Ure, who share a special connection to the world of flowers.
Tamar’s one-of-a-kind textile objects and sculptures are inspired by the natural world, transformed into modern curiosities through her unique approach to the design process.
Edie Urelives and works at the foothills of the Rocky mountains in Colorado, where she designs an eponymous collection of naturally dyed home goods, and works as a sustainable fashion educator, teaching natural dyeing. Utilizing the local ecosystem to carefully gather flowers, bark, leaves, roots, vegetables and earth pigments, Edie creates color palettes without the use of harmful toxins.
For this collection, Edie dyed silk velvets for a new pillow form Tamar designed. The colors will be changing from season to season, inspired by what is in bloom.
For Edie and Tamar, color is key to their work, believing that it taps into something emotionally deeper than trends. Their aim in this collection is to make objects that have an artistic impact on those who experience the forms, but not the earth.
The series was photographed byNgoc Minh Ngo, whose work explores the intrinsic beauty of plants and nature. In her many books, her pictures reveal her expansive appreciation for the variety of ways flowers have been used in different cultures and times in history.
