True know-how often reveals itself through a story.
We found inspiration thanks to the depth and richness of our archives. It is with an ancient woven polychrome lampas of an Obji, a Japanese belt for kimono, that Genji is born. The motifs of leaves and flowers of Paulownia have been used in Japan since the 14th century as emblems intended to honor deserving individuals. By weaving this document through the brocatelle technique, the honeycomb-like figure is almost embossed and the figurative design brings depth with a subtle play of colors that contrast the silky background.

Behind these simple geometrical patterns, one can discover the “Kasai Velvet” of the Kuba people of Zaire who bring a great importance to arts, ceremonies, personal ornaments and presentation. The introduction of this embroidered velvet technique in this part of Africa dates back to the 17th century.
The design takes root from the wooden sculpted design and the ethnic scarifications done at the time. Used for the Royal Court, the “velvets” were also used as currency. To honor this craft, Kouba acts as a modern interpretation and the delicacy of its pastel colors suggests a pure and refined design. Download the technical file
