Roberta Furlanetto: Weave: Tessere by Roberta Furlanetto

Fabric is to Roberta Furlanetto what oil and canvas are to painters. In fact, she might well take a canvas, fray it and weave it into other textiles with threads and precious stones. Furlanetto constructs by hand creations that can't quite be called fashion, and yet fashion houses from Christian Lacroix to Dior to Ungaro have incorporated her works into their clothes. Combining embroidery, gold, wool, lace, solvents and sometimes ceramic glazes, her patterns burst with color. Some are meant to be hung on walls, some on models. This vivid book shows Furlanetto's inventions both on their own and as part of the clothing collections of various designers, particularly Lacroix. As Paola Nicolin writes in the text, “the basic grammar of her work speaks the language of art: violated materials, collage, tears and inlay, chromatic contrasts, brushstrokes and spatters.”

About the Author

Roberta Furlanetto was born in 1964 in Asolo, Italy. Originally an art student, she won her first commission to work in fabric in the 90s from Mario Ghioldi, the owner of a large textile company in Appiano Gentile, Italy, who asked her to create a wall piece. She subsequently came to the attention of fashion designer Christian Lacroix and others in the industry and spent several years in Milan and Paris, before settling in Como, Italy, where she lives and works now.
