For TERRE DE PASTEL I also created a summerscarf in silk and cotton in DIGITALPRINT with different styles of drawings of the little pastel flower. See digitalprint projects.
TERRE DE PASTEL
I had the opportunity in the beginnning of 2014 to develop an artistic handprinted collection for Terre de Pastel, a fast growing society in Toulouse with a beautiful spa, restaurant, Museum and shop.
PASTEL is a blue pigment coming from a plant. This blue color made Toulouse rich and famous in the XV century. Now is time to redecover this beautiful and natural blue!
The pigment is quite close to Indigo, and the dying process is the same but the color are a little more grayblue. To use cloths dyed with naturaldyes will be more and more important for all of us today, in an urg to create a more natural and healther environnement.
In this project I have used the old pastelmanuscrips in different ways, to connect us with the rich history and bring it with us into the futur.
I have in this project CREATED THE PATTERN, handdyed in tie and dye style bags in different sizes and bookprotections and then handprint in silkscren with pastelpigment, tablemats, tablerunners and some other products.
To start with a small handprinted collection, is a perfect way to TEST the products on the clients before going into a bigger production. Every product is unique and have an artistic value...
FOR YOU: You can buy the handprinted texties at TERRE DE PASTEL boutique, 629 rue Max Planck, Labège outside Toulouse or at their website: www.terredepastel.com.
With TERRE DE PASTEL I can also offer you handprinted textile for interiordesign with patterns "origine" like cushions, curtains etc.
To create patterns from existing images is a real challenge for me. I can help you to create collections for Museums, or very personal gifts for your company for birthdays/ christmas etc. from photos or other images.
