The delicate art of scale

  • • Lucie's designs are made with a mix of materials
  • • She expresses herself through her detailed designs.
  • • Her primary material is paper

Lucie Touré’s artisanship is anchored in study and technique. After receiving her high school degree in applied arts, she then studied embroidery at the Ecole Duperré and went on to take a degree in textiles and materials from France’s École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs. Touré worked for six years in creative workshops for several luxury brands before establishing her own studio, where she now collaborates with designers and brands on anything from window displays to large installations. Tradition is a vital element of her art as the elementary techniques of her craft enable her to go beyond those traditions to then innovate through her choice of materials and style.
