CURIOUS CROWD for HBF TEXTILES*
For Curious Crowd, our first-ever textile collection, we developed an eye-catching portfolio of six fabrics inspired by ocean species like colorful sea slugs and jellyfish. The collection ranges from modern, graphic stripes and polka dots to more subtle, refined knits - seamlessly creating a collection that is universally appealing, yet full of surprises. The line combines impressive textile performance with the playful energy of the ocean. The Curious Crowd collection is comprised of: Ms. Quilty, Captain Bubble, Sir Stripe-A-Lot, Sister Solid, Madam Dottie and Mr. Dimple.
The first ever outdoor stretch knits, Ms. Quilty and Mr. Dimple, as well as our twist on a classic cabana stripe, Sir-Stripe-A-Lot, were made possible through the collaboration with our friends at Sunbrella®.
