Ma Poésie is the creation of Parisienne Elsa Poux. A graduate of the National School of Decorative Arts in Paris, Elsa is inspired by ethnic cultures and crafting know-how, designing unique patterns inspired by travel, architecture, drawing and painting, with a strong colour influence from Russian abstract artist Sonia Delaunay. Delaunay, known for her avant-gardist research on rhythms and colours, declared in 1923 that her fabric drawings were as much “poetry” as “the expression of a state of mind”.
Elsa's designs are imbued with a strong graphic identity and a range of very personal colours, and revealed through artisanal techniques of weaving, screen printing and embroidery on cotton, silk or wool.
The Prairie scarf is handwoven from soft, fine cotton and silk. It features an abstract pattern playing with flat tints and subtle floral designs on a softly textured check weave in shades of khaki, teal and aqua. Absolutely beautiful!
