Bringing textile techniques together

  • • Charlotte designs textiles for haute couture and interior design
  • • She has worked in Mumbai developing embroidery collections
  • • She is developing luxury accessories with weavers in Indian Kashmir

Charlotte Kaufmann designs unique textiles where hand weaving, needlework embroidery and bobbin lace interact. Changing the use of a technique, moving a material out of its primary field of application, or working on a new scale, are the foundations of her work. She opened her textile design studio in 2016 to develop what she had learned from working on collections for tailor made haute couture and interior design projects. She regularly collaborates with designers and craftsmen to create projects that combine excellence and innovation. Charlotte also lends her expertise to the development of exclusive models. From sampling to prototyping and small series production, all stages are mastered in the workshop.

This fabric, made by Charlotte for the Parker Knoll chair, demonstrates an evolutionary form of weaving, progressing from a two-dimensional to a three-dimensional textile. Parts of the weft appear in relief, creating a very tactile texture.
