Rethinking and reweaving

  • • Eszter works mainly with the pibione weaving technique
  • • She won the Hungarian Design Award in 2018
  • • She holds workshops and also teaches in schools

Even as a child, Eszter Révész was fascinated by the beautiful embroidery and weaving made by her grandmother. She loved handicraft summer camps, where she learned basic textile techniques, dyeing and beading. Always enchanted by colours and soft textile materials, after studying textiles in high school, she moved to the weaving department of MOME (Moholy-Nagy University). In 2011, after graduating, she started working as a freelance designer. After winning the Hungarian Design Award in 2018 with her folk-inspired textile collection “Tradition Recontextualized”, she created her own brand, working with a variety of weaving techniques. Currently, she mainly uses folk techniques such as pibione weaving or extra weft weaving, but she also has experience with hand manipulated lace weaving and ikat weaving. Eszter creates unique handmade rugs, pillowcases and other pieces

Lapis

The Lapis rug is made with the pibione weaving technique, which allows the weaving of delicate patterns. The knots appearing on the surface of the rug form the plasticity of the leaf pattern, which is further enhanced by the use of the monochrome mustard colour.
