Herron, also known as Studio Herron, is a weaving studio + textile brand that produces both lifestyle textiles and fiber art. With a vision to revive American textile manufacturing by combining an artistic process and traditional craft methodologies with responsibility and respect for the land and people, Studio Herron crosses both hand weaving and industrial mill weaving technology. Specializing in small scale, nuanced collections of blankets, rugs, and pillows as well as one-of-a-kind fiber based artworks and wall tapestries for architectural installation, private contract and corporate commission. Each are thoughtful works of art for everyday life, utility and comfort.
The process is analog; designing on paper in colored pencil and gouache, hand threading looms, tying each knot, stitching each hem. Studio Herron textiles are woven with domestically sourced cotton and wool grown by US fiber farms. The cultivation and care in the growth and harvest of these fibers ensures an heirloom quality longevity. Beautifully crafted textiles begins with seed.
Dee Clements is the Founder and Creative Director of Studio Herron. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Fiber and Materials Studies and Sculpture from The School of The Art Institute of Chicago, and has been weaving for 16+ years.
With a background in painting, drawing and sculpture, Clements uses these mediums to inform her textile collections and artwork. The results blend bold, graphic compositions with textural fabric structures. The interaction of shape, line and color in Clements’ textiles are deliberate and thoughtful, referencing abstract expressionism, pop culture and often personal history.
