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 Totem scarf is handwoven from soft, fine wool and silk in a generous size for winter wrapping. It features an abstract pattern playing with circles and stripes, with softly fringed edges. Absolutely beautiful!
