Swoon's Kickstarter Project: Braddock Tiles

Swoon and the Heliotrope Foundation have launched a Kickstarter Project to welcome Braddock Tiles into the world. 

All funds raised go to building a ceramic studio in North Braddock, PA that will hire & train local young adults to hand-make 20,000 roofing tiles.

Pledge today and you'll get great rewards, including the first line of Braddock Tiles decorative tiles, designed by Swoon.

Braddock Tiles was founded by Caledonia Curry, also known as Swoon, to open a ceramic tile-making shop, with jobs for local residents in North Braddock, PA. It will restore the roof of the Jones Street Church with handmade tiles and help launch a community arts center.

The Heliotrope Foundation is proud to offer these handmade scarves as one of our Kickstarter rewards. They are a collaboration between Swoon and Zarif Design, and are woven, dyed, and screened by hand in Kabul, Afghanistan. Please see below for the available colorways.
