Graymarket Design is a textile company rooted in modern design, casual, high quality products and ethical production. Hallie Gray started Graymarket in 2013 after studying textile design and becoming fascinated with the hand-crafted textiles she encountered on travels throughout India. She is inspired by a minimal aesthetic, rich color stories grounded in neutrals and the beautiful imperfections inherent in hand-crafted textile traditions. They collaborate with a team of artisans in Jaipur, India, to have their original, hand-drawn designs printed in small batches. Their workshop is filled with family members sharing and passing down ancient textile traditions, preserving a lineage of handcrafting expertise.
The design process originates in Hallie’s sketchbook or on pads of watercolor paper, and then travels to Rajasthan to be carved in relief into teak blocks. The master dyer hand-dyes small batches of fabric and leaves them to set in Jaipur’s famous sun-drenched air. Back in the workshop teams of printers work in pairs to hand-block the designs, and Hallie and the printers solidify the color story and designs to produce unique, hand-crafted products. Inspiration for the designs varies, but often comes from architecture and patterns seen travelling and the natural world.
