I would be really interested to know which kind of Rayon was used. Probably viscose, but its nice to see a rayon that isn't viscose for a change!

i love macrame...*sigh*...
part of my addiction to 70's chic...

i was rooting for liz collins when she first started her company...
but in the end...i think she was more of an artist than anything else...
nice that she found a gig teaching at her old school...

glad you guys like the thread.. i get a feeling some of the fabrics are too artsy to function too, softgrey. i'll try looking for some actually being used (though nigel atkinson on the 1st page uses his relief fabrics for chair covers and that)

thanks so much SomethingElse for adding the descriptions of the fabrics by Nuno.. Love hearing how they made them :p I think that is the most interesting part. They have sometimes very unusual processes

Here is some more of their work...

This is the synthetic made with 'origami' pleats

I think I remember reading this is done with a spatter effect,
a technique used in the automobile industry for creating shine for cars








all photos taken by my friend :p

This polyamide textile has been printed with polyester fluorescent flakes. A very textured fabric is created. The textile is intended for interior application.

Thank you for adding something new to the thread
I was wondering if there were only a few people interested in fabrics This is a very interesting piece. I like his technique.. using the collage. I read he wants to create an impression of lace, so the pieces are only joined at the edges.. Must be different to see in real life, more transparent

Oh! I've never heard of the Fabric Workshop
That sounds great! And they have apprenticeships, internships too...
I wish they post more work on their website !

great thread gius

Tzuri Gueta is a textile designer and his work is quite innovative.

According to information from his website his creations have been used by Thierry Mugler, Lapidus, Armani, Dior, Rochas, Galante, etc.

He was also responsible for the 'coral' like textile at the shoulders underneath this Givenchy S/S 07 HC dress...




images from style.com

his website states: "His latest creation is a series of ‘jewels’, objects and textiles that incorporate silicone...
It penetrates the minuscule cavities within lace. It takes the form of unique necklaces and moves colour to the translucid, but we cannot see any stitching because silicone is a complete material through and through.
It can imitate wood, ivory, coral or leather, taking on their physical qualities, infusing with a subtle luminosity, while adding new forms and agreeable textures which can be soft, smooth or rough."

quoted from www.tzurigueta.com

it's extrememly interesting...and plenty more information can be found at his website.
