ABOUT

inks + thread showroom

Nåde is a small batch women's clothing label located in Chattanooga, Tennessee. The creative focus of the brand is to pair innovative prints and color stories with classic silhouettes. With the nature of the fashion industry shifting from unique and one-of-a-kind exploration, inks + thread pieces strays from the ubiquitous path striving for originality. Every print is unique and we never use stock fabric. We use high quality silk, silk blends,  and natural fibers in all of our pieces to insure both the best quality items and  the finest wearing experience.

THE OWNER & DESIGNER:

Maggie Pate the designer + purveyor of Nåde. She began her career in fashion modeling internationally then retired to work for a label. Her work in textiles is a cross-section that explores the synthesis of textures, repetition + geometry. It forms a poetic visual language that ignites the potential of figurative rhythm - a visual synestheia; where shapes, colors + mood transform into a kaleidoscopic canvas. Phenomenal presence commands shapes that defy your imagination. Its hues are polychromatic, with colors so brilliant that you must squint + strain your vision. Textures, shapes, + hues carry mood + transcend feeling. These patterns manifest in the form of diaphanous scarves made of silk, cotton, or chiffon.
