Introducing Needlepoint Stripe Fabric
We are delighted to introduce Needlepoint Stripe fabric, designed by Danish textile designer Helene Blanche, which enhances the current Needlepoint Stripe wallpaper range, launched in March 2021. The Needlepoint Stripe pattern showcases Helene’s passion and expertise for exquisite and richly crafted designs, exploring the interplay between classic craft techniques and modern design.
“I am drawn to decorative textiles created over time by skilled craftsmen, not only in the Nordic countries, but also as seen in Italian and French interior settings and fashion houses. With Needlepoint Stripe, I wanted to pay tribute to this craftsmanship and simplify the richness of details”, says Helene Blanche.
Drawing references from decoration crafts such as needlework, embroidery, and tapestry, Helene introduces an elegant and minimalistic fabric collection with a soft and organic appearance that fits beautifully into a contemporary and international interior setting.
Printed by French craftsmen using Belgian linen as base cloth, the exquisite and refined character of the soft linen gives the design an elegant and timeless look when used for drapery, light upholstery, soft decor, and walling.
Complimenting the wallpaper range, the fabric is printed in six delicate colourways; Green Earth, Ochre, Sienna, Blue Teal, Rouge and Charcoal. Each has a soft and refined expression that dresses any room elegantly and poetically. Ideal for classic and modern interior settings.
“I have always been fascinated by decorative crafts such as embroidery, weaving and needlework. It requires talented craftsmen to weave tapestries and hand embroider beautiful patterns. These skills have always impressed me. My Norwegian grandmother mastered the many embroidery techniques so beautifully. She created the most exquisite embroideries onto a series of Norwegian national costumes. Learning to appreciate these decorative crafts from early childhood plays a large role in my work, as well as my eagerness to explore the interplay between classic craft techniques and modern design”, Helene Blanche explains.
