SHADES OF PALE - RAFFIA WEAVE
Shades of Pale reaches the perfect balance between tones of white and natural materials. A simple shade at first sight, white is however never ‘easy’. On the contrary, it is so complex that it is extremely difficult to determine. And yet... white illuminates us as soon as dawn rises, and the human eye has always been sensitive to its multiple shades, distinguishing shiny whites from matt ones, soothing from energizing whites. Like a chameleon, white merges into both a warm or a cold atmosphere. Timeless, it is the ultimate depiction of brightness. Serenity, elegance, purity, freshness,... it symbolizes mainly positive values. It seems self-evident to reserve centre stage for shades of white in a collection consisting of natural materials.
Abaca weave, bacnoc, bamboo, jute, waterlily, raffia, sisal and other tropical fibres – capiz shells, paper, linen and other textiles: the collection offers a wide spectrum of products, patiently and carefully manufactured by skilled craftsmen, in order to obtain an authentic and original result.
