Every season, the textile virtuosos from Creation Baumann captivate us with textile mastery and special techniques. The results are stunning and amazing. Whether you are a textile technician or a connoisseur of cloth, you will always be enthralled by a Creation Baumann collection. We were treated to their new masterpieces in our showroom tour during our recent Paris décor tour.
“Maurice” is a curtain fabric in a jacquard weave which features a high wool content and a three dimensional look. The 3D effect results from an interwoven shrink yarn which shrinks with exposure to heat to create a wash board effect pattern.
Old established techniques are reinterpreted in “Chloe” a high grade, elaborately produced embroidery fabric.
“Rosalie” is just as eye catching. The soft wool cloth with punched out motifs is suitable for curtaining and throws.
“Amethyst Fleur” is a masterpiece in embroidery technique. The ultra fine and highly sheer curtain fabric displays embroidered floral climbers on Trevira CS leno weave.
Exciting mixes emerge from the combination of some of the most diverse weaves, designs and colours. Among the highlights is “Serafina” – the nucleus of a whole series of hand drawn floral and organic patterns. This artistic panel features hand sketched flowers in an abstract look – a highly personal signature piece by a young designer. With “Serafina” Création Baumann graphically illustrates that, in an ever more digitalized world, individuality in design has attained greater importance and found a new role to play. The sketch was transferred to the fine semi sheer cotton muslin as a screen print;.
“Cosmea” and “Lupina” are further proof that today’s designers have not lost any of their drawing skills, the hand drawn colorful flowers and grasses are reminiscent of classic floral prints, done on silk taffeta with arrangements and coloring that deliberately deviate. The design has that certain “je ne sais quoi”. ( We’re in Paris after all!)
“Ava”, my favorite I am a nut for checks and stripes- is a print on silk taffeta with a hand painted check design. The artisan’s touch emanates from the broad, irregular brush strokes.
