Interior design junkies, take note. The silks designed by The Priory Project, based in Old Salem, North Carolina, rival those found in the world’s finest fabric houses. Founder Laurence Rosen works with a team of four to create subtle seventeenth-century patterns on nubby silk, applying layers of vivid acid dyes by hand, a process that imparts and imperfect, old-world quality to each piece. Here’s the best part: Whether you want to make one pillow or a houseful of draperies, you can order what you need through the Web site.
