D.D. and Leslie Tillett

Growing up you are never quite aware of the interesting and amazing the people around you. In my case it happened to be Deck and Kathleen Tillett who were carrying on the hugely influential textile design work of D.D. and Leslie Tillett. Kathleen still runs the business today out of an amazing factory overlooking corn fields and meadows, which fade off into the distance. This week an exhibition opens at MCNY entitled The World of D.D. and Leslie Tillett, which documents a great deal of the duo’s work. New York Times published an article entitled When Design Burst From Cloth on the Tilletts the other day as a primer for the upcoming retrospective.
