Jade Bréval builds up this collection during journeys in different countries, browsing around and selecting original, specific and authentic old pieces for almost unique one-off. Curious and enthusiastic about tribal fabrics, handmade techniques and natural dies, her selection gives preference to weavings, embroideries and other textile art esthetically modern : you can see them in Antique section. She also collects traditional textiles reflecting the mankind's skill, creativity, esthetic sense and authentically handmade actually as hundred years ago (Uzbek suzani, mohair blanket from Turkey, hemp Hmong skirt from Laos, lamba Akotofahana from Madagascar ...) contained in Contemporary section.
