Élitis: Fabric Collections – Horizon
Posted on April 12th, 2021
Their mantra? Semi-plain. True false friends of smoothness
and regularity, they curl, sway and intertwine the heritage
of weaving, juxtapose references and cover technical tracks
to take on a handmade look and feel. In a modern craft
culture, their beauty is pure, not ostentatious. Softness. A
blended bright spell that shifts the horizon of the essential.
Joy. The creations play on rustic and bare ambivalence while
transforming linen, jute or wool. The material, sculpted in the
fiber, exalts ethnic and authentic roots, enhanced with ultra tactile
or extra-cozy details. Who are its guides? The people of
the Earth, Kenya or Burkina Faso, the leaders of the Bauhaus
and even those who marked the Seventies.
The collection plays on irregularity and handcrafted
references while discreetly multiplying the effects (some of
which are only possible thanks to very old French machines!):
Structured jute, fancy linen, looped or braided wool, jacquard
and exceptional weaves.
