dOCERE: pronunciation /do’ke re
For over 180 years, Holland & Sherry has produced exquisite textiles, from tailored and refined to rugged and versatile. For 2019 we present dOCERE: a glimpse into the heart of the artist. Meaning “to teach,” dOCERE illustrates our diversity of process, materiality, and a freedom of expression that transcends the bounds of warp and weft. Conceptual, abstract and tactile, this collection of handwoven and hand-painted textiles is an opportunity to design without sacrifice, and to connect the pure spirit of creativity to decoration.
