Judy Ross is a New York based designer and artist. Traveling in India to work as an independent textile designer, she developed a passion for the centuries-old hand embroidery technique known as chain stitch, used by men in the Kashmir region to embellish shawls with traditional paisley and floral patterns. She lived on a houseboat on Upper Dal Lake while collaborating with the master embroiderers to develop a line of impeccably stitched contemporary wool scarves.
From embroidered scarves, her product line has expanded to home textiles: pillows, rugs, fabric by the yard, curtains, bedcovers, and wall hangings.
Judy Ross Textiles’ collection of hand-knotted Tibetan wool rugs interprets her trademark clean, graphic aesthetic at a larger scale. Her products are sold worldwide at high-end stores.
