Handcrafted Modern I and II
This product is currently sold out.
Handcrafted Modern I: A sturdy linen weave forms the ground for meandering cotton chain-stitch designs in modernist patterns, and chunky bars of satin-stitch embroidery, to give a decidedly fresh modern look to the ancient craft of stitchery. Printed fabrics, in linear designs, are rendered in a painterly manner, some like gentle watercolours, some in pointillist dots. Light filters through a curtain of very fine linen, pieced together in a geometric patchwork, and reflecting its abstract patterns on floor and walls. The Mark Alexander design studio has created patterns in the most subtle of colours and textures to enhance any interior – traditional or modern, in town or country.
Handcrafted Modern II: Sophisticated and innovative techniques, including a randomly-sprayed weft yarn and a flammé yarn which varies in thickness along its length, give the nubbly freeform appearance of the weaver’s hand-loom to this collection, with its interplay between linen and wool, in soft natural shades. A great deal of modern craft has gone into producing these weaves, which appear so delightfully haphazard. They have the look of ancient fabrics, yet they have all the advantages of a modern production. It is this very rustic artisanal feel which lends character and punch to a sleek modern sofa and looks comfortable on a craftsman-made chair of any era.
