In 1994, this creative duo, who had become acquainted when both worked in the millinery industry, decided to merge their distinctive but complementary talents. The result is ALEMAN / MOORE. This happy amalgamation has resulted into a fabulous line of magnificent sewn straw carpets, straw rugs and straw tables, which have become favorites worldwide. These sewn straw carpets have evolved from an overgrown hat brim into fully functional and durable works of art for the floor.
In the fall of 2002, ALEMAN / MOORE moved their operations from Brooklyn, New York to Hudson, New York. In their new expanded upstate studio ALEMAN / MOORE are continuing with their line of straw carpets and broadening their line of straw furniture pieces which include sewn straw stools and tables.
In 1997, ALEMAN/MOORE was awarded the Editors Choice Award, for their straw carpets, at The International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF). The work of ALEMAN / MOORE has been featured in many shelter magazines including Architectural Digest, House Beautiful, Interior Design, The World of Interiors, House & Garden, and Traditional Home.
