Heard about Hable Construction?Written by faith
Named after their great-grandfather’s road construction business, Texan sisters Susan and Katharine Hable founded the NY textiles company Hable Construction in 1999. Katharine, a born saleswoman with professional experience working at Kate Spade and Polo Ralph Lauren; and Susan, an artist inspired by nature and the handmade aesthetic, decided a business partnership would be a harmonious marriage of the siblings’ talents.
Adhering closely to their original vision is the practice of keeping the designs hand-drawn by Susan, and reproduced by skilled artisans who treat their work as a careful craft, employing traditional screenprinting procedures in an old New England factory. Furthering this principle, the company partnered with a Hungarian women’s cooperative in 2001 to produce a line of wool-felt products utilizing a traditional hammer and chisel applique technique. Outside of the wool-felt production, all Hable products are proudly made in the U.S. The colorful canvas and cotton/linen fabrics are printed by hand in an old New England factory.
