Jean-Pierre Ollier, embroiderer and textile designer at the Maison d'Exceptions show 2/2

(English subtitles available)
“I have an embroidery workshop which, although called as such, is not an embroidery workshop in the traditional sense. We set up this workshop in the year 2000 so it is not so old. As we had no records, we tried to find a textile expression that did not exist, i.e. a textile design without taboos, both in the technical aspects and in terms of the material. We try above all to make each textile precious, focusing not on the material itself, but on how it’s used: braiding it, mixing it, making the most of its rigidity or flexibility, a plastic effect, etc.”
