PLANETARIUM - textile design studio was created by -Esther & Ofir Yaloz.
A textile designer & a product designer, we both graduated with honors from Shenkar College of Engineering and Design in Israel.
After working in the design and fashion industry for several years, we have followed our dream, and opened our own print and design studio. We made the move to a beautiful town in upstate NY, with our dog and a whole bunch of design materials, books and everything we find inspiring.
We’re both collectors of all sorts of beautiful items which inspire us, and drive our creative process.
Our inspiration is derived from many different sources and eras, including music, personal memories, trips, old books, flowers, craft objects, nature and much more.
As a textile designer specializing in silk screen printing, I carried my childhood fascination with wildflowers to botanical images. They have become a central motif in my textile design. I delight in details and textures, and am passionate about printing and creating patterns. I love transforming raw materials into a unique final product. It’s all part of a magical process, accenting the uniqueness of each and every item.
Everything is hand-printed, dyed, and sewn in our workshop with much passion and attention to detail. We design our products in small series, just as we prefer to purchase items for ourselves. Whenever possible, we source our raw materials from manufacturers in the USA.
