The Vista program conceived and designed by Studio Z was supplied and supported by the late Mastercraft/GuildThreeSixty textile supplier. Vista was an innovative approach to supporting the Textile Jobber in meeting the A&D market demand for custom color and pattern in vertical surface.
The key Textile Jobbers in the Contract Industry were supplied with two VISTA boxes. One box contained a set of original Studio Z patterns, production ready and sampled in two colors: one on a light warp and one on a dark warp. This box also contained a Vista book, giving a color key based on the weaves used in each pattern. All the patterns were woven in a pre-selected group of six weaves. The second box was a color box, containing a full range of color options that could be applied to any of the patterns. The color box contained woven swatches, using the preselected weaves on a set of 12 production ready warps and 50 production ready fill colors.
