Product Spotlight: Bernhardt Textiles and Raleigh Denim Workshop Reach for the Stars

Sept. 30, 2015

The collection was released September 1

Bernhardt Textiles proudly introduces their collaboration with Sarah and Victor Lytvinenko of Raleigh Denim Workshop to produce the couple’s first textile collection, released September 1. Aptly titled "Looking Up," the collection is inspired by human kind’s fascination with the stars. The collection spans a broad range of rich hues, and brings to mind the retro designs made popular during the midcentury space races.

The husband-wife team started the Raleigh Denim Workshop in 2007 in their hometown of Raleigh, N.C. They completed informal apprenticeships with factory workers, patternmakers, and mechanics, with their focus on creating a small company specializing in handcrafted artisan jeans that were American made, American sourced, and timeless. In 2012, they expanded their line to include menswear and women’s collections.

Recently accepted into the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA), the Lytvinenkos’ continued commitment to reviving the rich textile industry in America led to their first interiors product entitled Powerbar in collaboration with Bernhardt Design in 2012. "Looking Up" is a continuation of their work with Bernhardt, adding to their hopefully expanding interiors portfolio.
