Calico’s inaugural collection was inspired by a rare sample of antique paper found by chance in a New York curiosity shop. Moved by the intricate and evolving microcosmic shapes, we experimented with contemporizing the pattern, melding traditional marbling techniques with modern designs to create a series of unique signature styles—Wabi, Lunaris and Night.
Wabi’s fluid design is influenced by Wabi-Sabi and acknowledges the beauty in impermanence, transience, and imperfection. Lunaris’ intricate topographical pattern is the result of a detailed study of lunar photography. And Night’s distinctive motif was inspired by the rich marble in the Hall of Mirrors at the Palace of Versailles, whose patterns we digitally transposed and transformed to bring out their ‘darker side.’
