Reinterpreting the art of weaving

  • • Kapara means 'textile' in Hindi
  • • Justine makes leather textiles for designers to use in their creations
  • • She weaves leather to create her unique fabrics

Justine Bossé discovered leather weaving during her student years, and leather became her material of choice because of its myriad textures and the technical challenges it presents. In 2014, she set up her workshop Kapara, where she dedicates herself to working with leather skins using techniques of the highest level. She believes in reinvigorating traditional weaving techniques by incorporating leather into textiles. The result: high-quality fabrics created from surprising and new leather yarns. With an exploratory spirit, Justine Bossé has reinterpreted textile weaving from her workshop in Nantes to create unique designs.
