Luce Couillet, Textile Laboratory

In her research workshop in Aubervilliers, Luce Couillet develops “made-to-measure” textiles from threads and fibers of all sorts destined for various fields of application: fashion, sport and interior architecture.

Her tool of choice is the loom and her artisanal approach grants a large palette of exploratory possibilities that use unconventional materials and fibers, which are still difficult to work with in industrial textile contexts. To produce these fabrics, she chooses from a range spanning the classic to the experimental: metals mixed with wool, synthetics with silk, recycled inner tubes woven with mohair, nylon braids ligated by stainless steel.

Preferring blends and contrasts, Luce Couillet reinterprets material characteristics, playing with brilliance and matte, fineness and volume, to compose refined hybrid weaves with often unexpected touches.
