“To dress” and “to clothe”, two verbs that never cease to vibrate to the liking of textiles.
Two verbs that were long thought of as actors in just the fashion industry, they have discovered other horizons as they search for equally innovative and creative messages: those of design. A form of expression in their own right, textiles can be used for all types of fabric designs.
All it takes is a material, a touch, or a pattern to change the atmosphere of a room, to open it up to all or to make it intimate, to give it a character. Textile design has nothing to envy regarding fashion: it conveys its own strong messages of intimacy, warmth, hope, and renewal.
Although textile manufacturing represents one of the oldest forms of handicrafts, it was not until the 19th century that it really took off. Traditionally, textile design was more about decorating our interiors using curtains, drapes, and other household linens. Today, textiles are being used in much more varied ways, and its role is being completely redefined by new generations of designers.
Texture, color, thread structure, and weaving...everything is designed to create innovative fabrics that are nevertheless still anchored in a deep traditional heritage.
