I am attracted to, and instinctively fascinated by the simple: the beauty in a line, a brush stroke, or a drop of ink. My job is to compose these elements, by way of repetition, so that a pattern emerges. Then comes the colours. My working process is all about allowing the prints and patterns to unfold in a vibrant and artistic processHelene Blanche, Textile Designer

Painted IkatNew Fabric And Wallpaper Collection
Paying tribute to Kasuri, an old Japanese ikat weaving technique, the Painted Ikat Collection presented as printed fabrics and wallpaper, brings a modern look to these traditional and time-honoured skills. The artwork by Helene Blanche is original, hand painted with light brushstrokes in ink on silk – leaving the final printed collection decorative and characteristic with its defined brushstrokes. The soft abstracted ikat design, with historic and artistic references and intricate pattern, will provide for a classic and artistically refined ambience.View more
Helene Blanche’s fabric and wallpaper collections are deeply rooted in their design origins. Her exploration of how a single drop of ink behaves when it meets a surface gave rise to the Drop Collection, while the study of the “perfect imperfect”, brought her to reimagine the classic stripe, resulting in the collection Painted Stripe. Her fascination with female 20th Century Danish weavers led her to investigate the relationship between a piece of hand-stitched fabric and hand-drawn dots on linen, which became the Stitch Collection. Her playful exploration of small dots on fabric yielded an observation of how a myriad of dots forms a linear stripe with a woven expression, which became the Polka Stripe collection.View more
