ORIGIN & MATERIAL
This cushion is made on its front side, with a very rare abacá fabric (from a local village in the Philippines), mix with a vintage hungarian hemp fabric dyed in a dark chocolate color, on the back side. Abacá has been a part of traditional agriculture in Southeast Asia, particularly in the Philippines, and is also known as Manila hemp, extracted from the leaf-stems. Abacá is also the traditional source of lustrous fiber hand-loomed into various indigenous textiles in the Philippines like t’nalak. T’nalak (also spelled tinalak), is a weaving tradition of the T’boli people of South Cotabato, Philippines. It is often woven exclusively by women who have received the designs for the weave in their dreams, which they believe are a gift from Fu Dalu, the T’boli Goddess of abacá.
All the interiors are made of 100% feather.
Each piece being old, be soft and gentle with cleaning, do not wash the fabric if you don’t need to. Can be washed at cold temperatures, delicate programm (maximun of 30 degrees), but preferably by hand, with an organic and natural detergent. No dryer.

All my creations are unique, entirely handmade, with vintage hemp found in Europe and more particularly in France and in the eastern Europe countries.
All the hemp pieces sourced are on average between 50 and 120 years old.
Once the hemp piece is cleaned and prepared, I decide either to keep it natural or to dye it in organic and natural, earthy colors.
My signature: to sublimate a defect in the material, a seam, a weaving defect, a patch…
Sensitive to the protection of our environment, and the questioning of overabundance and superfluity, I work in a sustainable and upcylcing approach.
My goal is to give a second life to high quality fabrics, hand woven in an ancestral way, to pay tribute to the work of man.
