A fourth generation family-run company that celebrated its centennial in 2002, Maharam pioneered the development of engineered textiles for commercial application. Though product performance defines contract textiles, Maharam strives to create innovative materials through in-depth exploration of pattern, material and technique. Maharam pursues a holistic approach to design, embracing a range of disciplines including architecture and interiors, furniture, fashion, accessories, graphic and digital design. The Maharam Design Studio is responsible for the development of an extensive textile collection and maintains a strong focus on new technologies and cultural markers, often finding inspiration beyond the textile industry, including collaborations with avant-garde industry outsiders.
