Behind The Threads: Yuma

Cara Gibbs

27 January 2022


Every now and then a fabric comes along that truly personifies its inspiration. Such is the case for our unabashedly colorful Yuma textile.


Known as the Gateway of the Great Southwest, Yuma is the sunniest city on earth located in southwest Arizona on the Colorado River adjacent to the Gila Mountains and California's famous Algodones Dunes. Steeped in a rich cultural heritage, picking up cues from Native American culture, this vibrant print mimics the backdrop of enchanting desert vistas and agricultural landscapes. In fact, the Sanguinetti House Museum and Gardens served as a big point of reference for this lively textile, as the history of irrigation and the agricultural movement weaved itself into the motif of this storied fabric.
