“Constructed using a double jersey knit, the collections reveal new surfaces of slightly quilted fabric combining the stretch flexibility and firmness necessary to upholster a wide variety of shapes with the possibility of less points of stitching.” say the Bouroullecs.

The knitted front layer of the textiles is made from fine mix of wool and polyester yarns, which combines dark and light fibres. “This ensures that they have a sensuous touch and feature a rich play of warm, delicate and irregular colour nuances.”
