Ommaille & Atelier 1n
Behind Ommaille is Jeanne who makes ethical knits for moms & kids which means endless cuddles. Her products are as eco-friendly as possible to go through time and take part of family memories. This is why she choose only natural fibers and knits them on a vintage knitting machine left by grandma. She carry this desire to transmit by textile design the authenticity of childhood. Behind Atelier 1 is Mariane who explores the random processes of natural printing that make each piece unique. She especially likes the idea that each piece of work is different and carries its own energy from its creation. Together they have created a line of vegan sock blanks. Small ephemeral artworks that can be exposed as is or appreciated in the moment and then re-knitted into another piece of art like a one-of-a-kind shawl. The idea behind this project is to sense the beauty and fragility of the present time and appreciate it.
