"This choice of fabric was inspired by our visit to one of the Seven Wonders of the World, the Great Wall of China. It strongly represents the ancient brick foundation, and the intricate surrounding greenery. While visiting Beijing, we ventured to the outdoor textile district, where we met dozens of sellers offering a variety of fabric merchandise. This minimalist design stood out as a portrayal of one of China’s most revered accomplishments." —Alyx Bean
