Looking Up: A Textile Collection by Raleigh Denim for Bernhardt Design

Sarah Yarborough and Victor Lytvinenko are the brains behind Raleigh Denim, a brand they launched in 2007 with a mission to rekindle American craftsmanship and the once-thriving North Carolina textile industry. Their initial focus was handcrafted, limited-edition collections of jeans, concentrating on quality over quantity, and over the years the company has steadily gained a loyal and much-deserved following with each new venture. Now, the duo has partnered with Bernhardt Design on their first textile collection they’ve named Looking Up.


The celestial unknown… that same wonder we all experienced as children, which was the result of staring up at sky and imagining, is the inspiration behind the collection.


As Yarborough says:

Stars serve as a visual ceiling to our world, and they are ever-changing depending on location, distance and time. These constantly shifting perspectives allowed us to create multiple textile designs built from the same concept.


The collection is made up of four patterns that are available in 32 color ways.





Flight falls right in line with the brand as they covered their first store’s ceiling with 5,000 paper planes!
