Beautiful patterned scarves by Amelie Charroin and Marie Colin-Madan of Milleneufcentquatrevingtquatre. Love their site's design too – nice, simple and to the point.
Our patterns are designed by both of us, using several manualy processes as well as drawing, painting, photomontage. We create composite images, where narration and geometric bases have been combinated. The composition set-up is mainely based on the corners, the fours of them are totally unique. Each square of silk is a picture to wear.
Our images are inspirated by history of painting, architecture, traditional patterns of silkscreened square of silk, but our first influences are more contemporary, our own lives, our daily lives. Nature that we are fantasizing, blogs we are following, movies, music, videos, ...
We work in Lyon, silk historical birthplace. By being here, we made the choice to work closely with the best French silk manufacturers. Each piece is woven, printed and shaped in Rhône-Alpes, France. Scarves' boxes are hand-printed by our-self in our workshops.
