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.

Inspired by incredibly vibrant ocean mollusks, their oval, layered outlines are overlapped to create the slug-like, geometric pattern for this quilted knit.
This bubbly textile was inspired by the bubbles on the tentacles of the Mediterranean jellyfish, crafting a soft-to-the-touch, textural fabric.
A classic cabana stripe gets a sideways kick after studying the entangled tentacles of the Pacific Sea nettle jellyfish.
This sea slug has gills on its back — a closer look, reveals a beautiful, dotted texture — which inspired this soft and delightfully bumpy textile
