Every designer, crafter, artist, sewer or anyone with a creative mind is constantly looking for inspiration. That inspiration can come from all sorts of places, whether it be social media, magazines, books or even Mother Nature.
Imagine a place where that inspiration is tangible. A place where you can walk into a room and actually see, feel and experience archives from all over the world. Antique textile documents, original hand-drawn paintings, antique one of a kind books, beautiful Italian Renaissance jacquards, 18th century hand block prints, early 19th century embroidered silks and more.
The Baxter Mill Archive is that special inspiration destination tucked away in the town of Rock Hill, South Carolina, currently housed in an original 1800s cotton factory. I am happy to say I work at the Archive as the Creative Director. I call it my “candy shop.” Our in-house designers use these archives every day for their projects, but I am thrilled to announce that we are now sharing this unique and extraordinary gem within the industry.
I invite you to come play in the “candy shop!”
