TEXTILE CHOREOGRAPHY

The Hand

Weaving is a dance, a rhythm, a breath

I weave my fabrics entirely by hand, giving the greatest importance to the weaving gesture: giving the hand the necessary amplitude and flexibility, seeking the right and authentic gesture: the act of weaving engages the body, the mind and the soul.

This choreography is at the source of the fabric’s whole substance and poetry. The weaver’s intention and energy can be read in the subtle variations of the weaving, making the fabric a living piece, vibrant with a unique soul.

 

 

Weaving engages the body, the mind and the soul

I work on a fully manual loom whose principle, unchanged for 1000 years, allows a great diversity of patterns and the realization of an almost infinite variety of projects.

About twenty steps are necessary to produce a fabric, from warping to washing, fulling and ultimate finishing.

Each piece is unique and numbered, its history preserved and archived.

I carry out and control each of these steps manually to guarantee perfect control of the final result.

I can thus realize in my workshop the exclusive production of about sixty pieces each year.

The process is patient and meticulous: depending on the size and complexity of the fabric, 4 to 7 days, sometimes even more, are required to produce an exceptional piece.

Together, they form a universal collection of landscapes and stories intended to continue their lives and to be passed on to future generations.
