Meltem Birey -- an interior designer, gallery owner, and founder of Flotsam+Jetsam -- has a passion for digital textiles. She was inspired to create the newspaper print by a memory of her father, an architect who used to sketch on newspapers. She worked with the same print to create a men’s tie and bow tie, too. They’re statement pieces that are bold without going overboard, and the craftsmanship is impeccable. Meltem’s kimono, as well as her ties, are designed in Philadelphia and made to order.

Ordinary newsprint is a familiar, humble material. Rendered on fine silk, the iconic New York Times captures a whole new audience of people who appreciate the intersection of culture, fashion and art.
