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.
