Luum Launches Earthly Artifacts Collection | Combining Elements of Art, Anthropology, and Geology

Texture always manages to command a conversation–from parley as rudimentary as crunchy vs smooth peanut butter to overarching exploratory discussions on its impacts on mood, health, and wellness. Similarly, the philosophically confounding conundrum of the human imprint on Earth and what we leave behind both physically and digitally has been plaguing our minds since eons. Interweaving the qualities of the Earth’s textures and the patterns created by humans throughout their lifetimes, Luum Textiles combines elements of art, anthropology, and geology within its newest collection launch, Earthly Artifacts.

Both abstract and representational, the four textile collection features layered fields of multi-color materials that create complex earthen shades, reminiscent of contemporary art and archeological remnants.


Made with a variety of high-performance, recycled materials selected for multi-purpose and indoor/outdoor use, Earthly Artifacts examines the impact and expression of nature’s organizing principles. Fragmented and textural, emerging and fading, Geoglyph’s large-scale grid pattern mirrors the impressions we leave on the Earth while Pebble Melange boasts a chunky, heathered and multi-color surface, layering fields of boucle and blended fibers to create complex shades that mimic the Earth’s strata. Both upholstery textiles utilize high-UV boucle and blended yarns to make them bleach-cleanable and suitable for indoor/outdoor use. Highly-textural, subtle and sophisticated yet outstanding in performance, Particulate is Luum’s first high-UV fabric for indoor/outdoor and multi-purpose use. Meanwhile, composed of 100% recycled cationic and disperse polyester fibers, Megacheck’s heathered effect is the result of light-and-dark contrasted and colored warp-and-weft threads, interacting to create a small-scale, color-and-weave effect.


Earthly Artifacts tells the story of topography through the lens of human intervention and the collective form of many individual paths — weaving new meaning into our relationship with the Earth.
