Abbot & Atlas was founded in 2017 in Athens, Greece. Inspired by the remarkable historical textile collections in the region, and later those throughout wider Europe, initial design production began from an office in Kolonaki overlooking the Acropolis.
From our founder's early collection of historical textiles, and a deep network of collectors and connoisseurs, came the seeds of a textile firm that draws from history, folklore and global culture to produce collections of original, print-to-order fabric. We work with curators, historians and designers around the globe to produce fabrics with context and a story.
Our original collections are printed in the United States using the finest water-based inks on 100% linen, ensuring quality and longevity for generations. We are headquartered in the West Village of NYC.
