Our print is inspired by an artisanal technique called Ikat, combining dyeing and weaving. The pattern is first dyed on the threads before they are woven. This craft was born in China around the 6th century and gradually spread to South East Asia, India and the Middle East.
The creative process
In order to create this print, our graphic designer Gwennaëlle worked with watercolours and brushes to transcribe the ink-soaked threads and the blurred outlines, typical of the Ikat craft.
Guipure is an embroidery in which the background has been eliminated. A work of guipure associated with recycled polyester takes up the moucharabiehs in earthenware lace.
