Les Cuvées are a limited edition of throws, bed covers in hemp and linen. A collection of bed covers in wool is in progress. Each piece is created with a basis in natural indigo which is then completed with one, two or three colors. Les Cuvées are thus made of several layers or "passages" - from six to eight - progressively allowing materiality, depth, light. The fabric becomes a picture, the picture becomes an imaginary landscape, vibrant and open.
The grid pattern comes from a shibori technique called itajime. This technique serves to shield portions of the fabric from the dye by folding and pressing it.
The French word "cuve" (vat) identifies the major step of the creative process - once designed, the textiles are soaked multiple times in a vat to be dyed. Furthermore, the word, of course, echoes to wine in different aspects: our textiles have « bouquets », must be pampered to be conserved and have their place in everyday life just as in special occasions.
Les Cuvées were presented for the first time at IMM Cologne design fair in 2023. The Cuvées project goes on.
