This Scholten & Baijings and Maharam collaboration was sparked after Maharam's Mary Murphy first saw darning samples on view at Cooper Hewitt. Darning is a technique of repairing holes using needle and thread, typically done by hand. The patterns in this pillow pay homage to the centuries-old needlepoint tradition.

Stefan Scholten and Carole Baijings started working together in 2000. Working with major companies such as Hay, Thomas Eyck, and with work included in the regular collections of Centraal Museum Utrecht, Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam en Nederlands Textiel Museum Tilburg. Their work explores color with signature palettes, and how the boundaries between applied and autonomous work interact.
