Behind the Design

Introducing Sabyasachi for Pottery Barn


We are so excited to be working with Indian fashion designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee for our newest collaboration.  He is best known for transforming ancient textiles into modern silhouettes, using indigenous techniques like hand dying, embroidery and blocking print.  Pottery Barn partnered with Sabyasachi to create a collection of global, vintage-inspired decor that draws up on his design duality of maximalism and minimalism.  The result is a collection that evokes travel and items picked up along the way that each have a story to tell.  It’s a story of imperfection and the beauty that comes with age but also with craftsmanship and detail.


Just like in his fashion designs, Sabyasachi was intensely focused on making sure that the beauty of India’s  trained artisans  shined through the collection which is why he selected many of the patterns from those artisans who participate in his Sabyasachi’s Art Foundation.  Many of the fabric and plate patterns were meticulously produced by hand by these artists exclusively for the Pottery Barn collection.  The attention to detail, the coloration and palette combinations is testament to the trained eyes of these men and women.


We can’t wait for you to explore the world of Sabyasachi and invite you to take a minute to listen to the man himself as he explains how the collaboration came about and why he thinks the Pottery Barn customer is ready for a collection like this.
