Cold Picnic have relaunched their Tufted Rugs in 100% Tex wool, which is comprised of only the longest and finest fibers of New Zealand wool (think of it as New Zealand wool yarn’s greatest hits). Due to its fineness Tex yarn takes color with more vibrancy and sheds much less than other wool hand tufted rugs.
Cold Picnic was formed in 2010 by partners Phoebe Sung and Peter Buer, both of whom have backgrounds in fine arts and worked in corporate fashion design. Deeply influenced by national parks, film, interior design and art, the couple began working on various side projects together in an effort to view traditional crafts filtered through modern sensibilities. Before long these projects coalesced into Cold Picnic, a line of textiles and home goods. Cold Picnic’s work explores imagined and misremembered landscapes, and the effects of time and the elements upon their surfaces.
Sung and Buer design all Cold Picnic pieces from their Brooklyn studio and work with artisans in India to produce their handmade rugs, quilts, and bathmats. They work with a small family run factory in India of 20 employees, and their bath mats adhere to the Social Accountability International Certification: SA 8000. An international certification standard measured by a company’s adherence to social accountability in the workplaces: child labor, forced labor, health and safety, free association and collective bargaining, discrimination, disciplinary practices, working hours, and compensation.
