Beauty of Imperfection is a collection that comes from an exploration into the interplay of colour pattern and texture by layering different print processes and embracing the sometimes unpredictable results.
Viscose silk is a very sensual fabric that combined with devoré is a perfect vehicle for this subtle layering of colour and pattern. The sophisticated and elegant process of devoré is also by nature a destructive one, taking away some parts of the textile structure while leaving others intact, which creates a vulnerability in the fabric. Embracing these small imperfections and marks accepts their presence as an integral part of the work and distinguishes the hand of the maker from the machine.
