About Susan and Katharine: Named after their great-grandfather’s road construction business, Texan sisters Susan and Katharine Hable founded the NY textiles company Hable Construction in 1999. Katharine, a born saleswoman with professional experience working at Kate Spade and Polo Ralph Lauren; and Susan, an artist inspired by nature and the handmade aesthetic, decided a business partnership would be a harmonious marriage of the siblings’ talents. Paving roads of a different sort, the new generation of the family business merged their skill sets with an updated sensibility, aiming to create artfully distinctive and utilitarian products for everyday living. Katharine currently resides in Brooklyn, New York, and is the entrepreneurial force behind Hable Construction. Susan currently resides in New York City and is the designer behind the strikingly colored and lofty-scaled patterns cast on Hable Construction products.
