Merida Studio

Merida Studio is a workshop at the forefront of the nexus of art, design, and craft that produces limited edition, collectible works of textile art. Led by CEO and Owner Catherine Connolly and Artistic Director and Paris-based designer and textile artist Sylvie Johnson, the avant-garde company is committed to exceptional quality and slow design, the use of organic and sustainable materials, and cultivating the talent of American artisans. It operates one of the few remaining mills in Fall River, Massachusetts—once the textile center of the Industrial Revolution—creating an empowering space for local craftspeople and artists to experiment and innovate with tools, and materials, while embracing time-honored weaving techniques.
