As a way of highlighting its bespoke service and supporting up-and-coming designers, Vero Fabrics and Holland & Sherry launched a competition to create a new jacquard textile. The winner was Isabel Di Stasio, a student at KLC School of Design, whose ‘Massura’ design is pictured.
Chosen by the judges for its adaptability – it looks good at larger or smaller scale, lends itself to Vero Fabrics’ custom colouring capabilities, and can work across both commercial and residential interiors – it was inspired by a sensory experience while travelling, according to Di Stasio. “One summer evening, strolling through the narrow streets of a busy Moroccan bazaar, I was captivated by its intense colours, rich flavours and oriental scents,” she says. “This design embodies that experience for me.”
‘Massura’ will go into production, woven in a wool-silk mix at one of Vero Fabrics’ British mills.
