Kiva Motnyk grew up in a creative household (her mother was a dancer, her father a painter, and their home served as a communal dance, painting, and photography studio) in SoHo. Today after 15 years as a textile designer and creative director for such brands as Isaac Mizrahi and Apiece Apart, Kiva pays homage to her creative upbringing with a collaborative space of her own: Thompson Street Studio.
For Thompson Street Studio, Kiva designs and crafts original textiles and other goods for the home. Using traditional techniques and mostly vintage and reclaimed materials, the designer experiments with texture, color, and pattern to create handmade, one-off pieces for the modern home.
Kiva has created a new quilt to be unveiled at this weekend’s Remodelista New York Market at Canvas Home. Stop by to shop Thompson Street Studio and more than 40 other area vendors.
