Are you an interior design professional?
Erin Minckley was born in SLC, Utah and came to Chicago to pursue her MFA in Fiber and Materials Studies at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, (MFA, 2012). Mother of two boys, she founded the company with a pipedream to make a day job for herself creating textiles. With a background in education and print manufacturing, she has succeeded in growing her brand to an international reach by the time she hit her fourth year in business. In 2020, Erin set out to help other artists become profitable from their art by writing a book entitled Artists Who Thrive which is available in the shop and on Amazon. Her newest release in Fall of 2022 is the fabric collection. Followed by a rug launch with patterns to adorn the floors, now Relativity Textiles fully embraces every part of an interior space as a canvas for one of a kind art.
The goal of this brand is to be inspired by the rich history of textile traditions around the world and bring foreign cultures into your every day life. By way of tetiles, we hope to connect the dots from East to West, to pay homage to the makers of the world and to diversify the imagery seen in our modern vernacular. Culturally appropriate depcitions of cultures are hard to come by in the world of wallpaper, and this is where Minckley saw a gap in the marketplace. "In another life I was an anthropologist, an explorer or a photo journalist." Traveling the globe, scouring every continent for luscious visual stimulation and bringing back a taste of each place for family and friends to see. That is how our tagline became “Bring the World Home.”
