D SÉRIE objects
Able to be produced only manually, this weaving combining vegetable tanned leather with natural fibre ropes plays with a multitude of stripes. It has been placed on cushions, ottomans, sofas and utility bags of various sizes. The original name of the project: Kair, meaning ropes in Tamil, is an artistic attempt to preserve, revitalize and elevate a rapidly fading art of hand loomed material in South India. This collection will always present small woven imperfections and slight size variations in the stripes which make every products one of a kind.
H SÉRIE objects
July 2020, in the middle of the pandemic crisis, I started working on selecting the natural fibres for our collection of woven mats, bags and baskets. The selection process entails a lot of experimentation to see which fibres work best not only in terms of strength and longevity but also in terms of sustainability and building circular economies. And keeping in mind our DNA which is handmade leather detailing, we are showing a lot of samples combining natural fibres with leather.
Dig into our box of treasure

This fine craftsmanship is the signature of Ateliers Courtin, the workshops in the Pondicherry-Auroville belt known for its research and development in techniques around leatherwork. As the title explains, the object is completely twisted on a collectible item.
