Élitis is synonymous with elegance, culture and attention to detail. The French company is a leading name in the production of fabrics, upholstery and wall decorations, with collections appreciated worldwide. A success that is based not only on the proposition of refined textures and motifs, but also on a precise philosophy. The aim of the founder Patrice Marraud des Grottes, in fact, is to transform every creation into a real journey, full of poetic and cultural suggestions. In order to do this, the company has the collaboration of a large team of designers, as well as a design team that renews the dictates of the French textile tradition.
Coatings, wallpaper and fabrics
The action of Élitis is continuously influenced by ideas from distant and fascinating cultures. This pleasant mixture of experiences leads the activity to propose upholstery, curtains and fabrics with a timeless charm. As in the case of the Japan inspired decorations of the Soleil Levant line, or the geometric patterns of the Pop line. This series of coverings is appreciated for the suggestive colour combinations inspired by the 70s. Colour is also an essential element of the Alcôve coating, which exploits the elasticity of polyester and the innate refinement of velvet. A sophisticated and technologically advanced product, considering its high resistance to fire and light. Making the most of the raw materials at one's disposal is another of the typical characteristics of Élitis production. And while the Essences de Bois collection of wall coverings is dominated by wood, the Oxydes range goes so far as to use metal, the protagonist of glittering interior coverings embellished with plays of colour. The same desire to explore new ideas and cultures is present in the production of wallpaper. In the Talamone collection, the texture of vinyl is used to propose floral motifs, but also exquisite alternatives in fabric effect. The Raffia & Madagascar line, on the other hand, transports you to faraway worlds, where the strength of the colours is combined with the irregularity of the textures, for a look that is both wild and elegant. The starting point, however, remains the fabric. And if, on the one hand, plain colour solutions are proposed, like Claro, on the other hand there is no lack of floral alternatives in linen, like Giardino. It is the variety of styles, the desire to play with shapes and materials that characterizes the creative work of Élitis, able to move from the high level design of the Invitation fabric to the essentiality of the weave of Respiro, a linen and cotton curtain fabric.
Élitis textiles and fabrics: new expressions of style
The furnishing fabric, for Élitis, becomes a research tool, a means through which to dare, to explore new expressions of style. The company challenges the traditional concept that relegates wall coverings to secondary elements. Thanks to constant research and constant attention to new trends, the French brand has been able to create collections capable of opening up to the world, to the different, to comparison. Every product line, then, is a story in itself. By the will of the founder, Patrice Marraud des Grottes, the Elitis collections are accompanied by suggestions that come from the sun, the sea, the enchantment of the Greek islands. And the first way to express this enchantment lies in the names given to the various products. Wonderland, Équateur, Panama, Costa Verde: these and other examples shed light on the way the activity operates, which sees each collection as a signed work of art. The textile lines become journeys that inspire and transport to distant worlds, for a personal experience that is constantly renewed.
Furnishing fabrics between poetry and research of new materials
The whole history of Elitis is marked by beauty, by poetry. The company, founded in Toulouse in 1988, owes its name to the contemporary Greek poet Odysseas Elytīs, a leading figure in surrealism. The choice is not accidental: the French company shares the typical dreamy and irrational dimension of its literary works, but alongside this is the solid certainty that comes from technological innovation. The brand is committed to the research of new materials, more sustainable and durable, that can bring even more uniqueness to the furnishing fabrics and upholstery offered to the public. The fascinating mixture of psyche and matter offered by Élitis has conquered the public. Today, the business exports its products to over 100 countries, from Argentina to Russia, via the United Kingdom. Wallpapers and wall coverings proposed embellish offices, hotels and restaurants, as well as private homes. Remaining faithful to the vision of its founder, then, the French brand has been able to gain a leading position, thanks to its collections that disorient and, at the same time, continue to bewitch the world markets.
