The Grommet debuts silk newspaper print apparel

May '13
The Grommet, an online shopping site and product launch platform for innovative and undiscovered products, is working with Interior Designer to feature Flotsam+Jetsam, silk newsprint apparel. The Grommet spotted this beautiful Kimono at the New York Gift Show in January, 2013 and immediately knew this company's unique beauty would make for great products.
 
Settling in to enjoy the Sunday paper, there’s no more fitting attire than a silk kimono printed with classic New York Times articles. The glamorous dressing gown isn’t just for catching up with the news, of course. When lingering over a cup of coffee before the chaos of the day begins, or curled up with a book after dinner, the newspaper robe from Flotsam+Jetsam wears elegantly and drapes beautifully. You’ll want to start and end every day wrapped in its prose.
 
Meltem Birey -- an interior designer, gallery owner, and founder of Flotsam+Jetsam - has a passion for digital textiles. She was inspired to create the newspaper print by a memory of her father, an architect who used to sketch on newspapers. She worked with the same print to create a men’s tie and bow tie, too.
 
They’re statement pieces that are bold without going overboard, and the craftsmanship is impeccable. Meltem’s kimono, as well as her ties, are designed in Philadelphia and made to order. Ordinary newsprint is a familiar, humble material. Rendered on fine silk, the iconic New York Times captures a whole new audience of people who appreciate the intersection of culture, fashion and art.
