Maggie Galton: Mexican Textiles
American designer Maggie Galton’s textile range takes inspiration from timeless Mexican crafts and updates them for a modern audience. The native New Yorker is an art historian turned designer, who now calls Mexico home.
Galton works with traditional craftsmen and communities throughout Mexico to create handmade artisanal interior products. She hopes to revive dying craft traditions by developing and adapting this ancient artistry to contemporary tastes and introducing these indigenous works to a wider audience.
Her product range includes pillows, bed linen, throws and tableware. It is available from a variety of shops across Mexico and is also stocked at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
Galton has also collaborated with other designers on several interiors projects, including producing bed linen, pillows and outdoor furniture for Hotel Eco Paraiso in Mexico. For similar products and companies, see our Interiors Industry Trend Nomad Spring/Summer 2013.
