Our Story

Where Artistry Meets Home Decor

Artist, Erin Minckley

Meet the Founder

In 2015, my life was completely and forever changed by a Kickstarter campaign. Raising $21,000, I was able to launch my first collection of wallpapers.

This seemingly small act of courage to ask for support would eventually fund and launch Relativity Textiles and set my life on a wildly new and beautiful course.

Founder, world traveler, certified life coach, author…but first and foremost, I’m an artist. And it’s this innate creative drive that has always pulled me forward down a long, winding, and artful path through life and given me the motivation to turn my wildest dream into reality

With over 10 years of experience in the manufacturing industry combined with a fervent passion for art history, Relativity Textiles is the culmination of a lifetime of scouring the globe for design inspiration and the desire to share it with the world.

Today, we serve like-minded artists, designers, and homeowners across the world through our library of hand-printed wallpapers, fabrics, and artwork.

It’s my passion and mission to pay homage to the craftspeople of the world and pattern-makers of the past, to connect you to non-Western cultures through art, and to support a sustainable economy for other artists to thrive as members of The Relativity Collective.

Welcome to my home, I’m so looking forward to bringing the world into yours.

Globally Inspired, Ethically Made

Our Manufacturing Process

Since our founding, we’ve made a conscious effort to support American mills for our production because we believe in eco-friendly printing processes, fair wages, artist-owned manufacturing and women-owned operations.

The wallpaper in our shop was designed and handmade by an artist with a vision to create beauty in the world. These textiles are made from scratch right here in Chicago, IL where we’re able to master our manufacturing process and take close care of the materials being used, limit waste, and ensure a quality product that will last for years to come.

We’re mastering the art of this process so that you don’t have to.

Our extensively researched, culturally and historically diverse designs are hand-screen and sustainably digitally printed whenever possible, and our wallpapers use the most eco-friendly paper substrates. These beautiful performance fabrics are printed using state-of-the-art dye sublimation processes, have passed the Wyzenbeek 30,000 rubs test, are fade-resistant, and are suitable for indoor and outdoor use.

And our brilliant team color checks every design, paper, and package to ensure each product we ship is up to industry standard and ready to exceed expectations time and time again.
