Alter Ego is based on multiple archives including a 1947 textural solid designed by Toni Prestini, Suzanne Huguenin’s Knoll Nylon Homespun (1965) and Executive Tweed (1968). From sheep to loom, Alter Ego is 100% American wool upholstery. An artisanal process blends up to 6 unique colors of wool fiber to create the multidimensional and heathered yarns used in the upholstery. A final finishing process creates a soft luster and hand. Wool is a material for all climates! Wool fibers are breathable and do not conduct heat. In fact, wool has built in climate control so it feels cool in hot climates and warm in the cold. Wool naturally resists wrinkling and staining as well.

In my own words, Knoll and Knoll Textiles is probably the best known and most asked for commercial textile company. Because of Charles and Ray Eames and Knoll’s early design innovations the company has gained a following and name recognition that can’t be matched. Their fabrics are fabulous and worth the investment. They partner with a lot of great designers to introduce new patterns and they keep re-issuing old patterns that are classic and timeless.
