KVP - TEXTILE DESIGN

Project : Quilting

Collaborating with creators or buying goods produced in small series is not just about simple goods.
What you buy is above all a passion, an identity, a creativity, a universe, a sharing, and skills.
It’s in this way of respect for human dimension that KVP presents, through the photo lens of Julien Hendoux, a focus on the creative process of quilted cushions, as well as on its research and sampling phases.

To be able to quil the fabric, the pattern must first be printed on it.
The silkscreen frame must be insulated then prepared, and the fabric stretched on a table with pins.
Once the frame is fixed, the ink is applied on it, and printing can begin with several passes using a doctor blade.
Each print requires a washing of the frame. And when the fabric is dry, the ink must be fixed under the effect of heat.

Back at the office, the printed fabric is pinned to a layer of fleece.
The quilting can then begin. The sewing machine goes over on each line of the pattern, that’s what will get this comfortable and graphic volume effect.
