NEW YORK — Macy’s has recently launched the Shash Diné Hotel Collection, a limited-edition array of home pieces created for Macy’s and curated by Navajo designer Baya Meehan.

Meehan is the founder and CEO of Shash Diné EcoRetreat, a “glamping” resort in Arizona. The Shash Diné for Hotel Collection features quilts, comforters, kimonos, robes, towels and more.

“Home is not only the place that my ancestors have walked and lived, but the land that demonstrates Navajo hospitality at its finest,” Meehand said. “The outstanding natural beauty of nature itself and the connection with the land is meant to be felt throughout each piece designed and created for Macy’s.”

Drawing inspiration from the natural environment surrounding the Arizona land, Baya pays homage to her heritage with traditional patterns and textures in this latest installment of the Macy’s Hotel Collection. Designs were carefully crafted to look and fit into accommodations at the EcoRetreat while also replicating the atmosphere of Shash Diné.

The Navajo-inspired patterns and textured yarns capture the natural beauty and tranquility of the American Southwest, connecting land, thought and care into the curation of the designs, the company said.

“We are delighted to partner with Shash Diné and Baya, who beautifully incorporated her heritage and southwestern designs into this stylish home edition of hotel collection,” said Stephanie Muehlhausen, senior fashion director, Home, Macy’s. “Empowering and amplifying our collaborations with diverse-owned brands and designers is core to Macy’s social purpose platform, Mission Every One, and its commitment to building a brighter future with bold representation.”
