Chief Creative Officer, Deb Waterman Johns, travels the states and abroad several times a year, using her well-trained eye to find inspiration everywhere from fabric houses and color fairs to street fashion.
Upon absorbing the trends, Deb compiles images, objects and textiles to help inspire the direction for the season. For example, the shells from our Spring 2017 line were inspired by bathroom wallpaper in a San Francisco restaurant. Every pattern has a story.
Under Deb’s direction, our talented pattern designers create hundreds of original designs, hand drawing many of them.
The designs are edited down to a cohesive collection of patterns per season. Each pattern is a limited edition and produced only once. The SCOUT team then gathers to name each new pattern and product.
