K y l e B u n t i n g , known worldwide by designers for hide rugs adapted t o s p e c t a c u l a r designs, has collaborated on collections with photographer Douglas Friedman and designer Timothy Corrigan, and now he collaborates with his mother, Peggy Bunting, on a collection of heirloom hide rugs inspired by traditional American quilts, which launched on Mother's Day. As a child growing AMERICAN CLASSIC ART & DECORATION up in North Carolina, Peggy was first introduced to quilting by her mother; she's since made the craft entirely her own, with new designs, patterns, and construction techniques in hair-on- hide. Kyle and Peggy created 18 rugs for the Stateside collection, with colors and patterns that evoke cherished memories of the Carolina coast, North Carolina's Smoky Mountains, Texas and Montana. Kyle's late father, Jim, pieced hides together as an artist, developing what is now the proprietary technique used in all of Kyle Bunting's rugs. Stateside is made from Italian hides and can be customized in any color, size, or shape.
