Cotton by the metre - GRAFFITIby Matilda Olsson
Alex&Elle’s beautiful designer fabrics are imported directly from Scandinavia. Scandinavia has a strong textile tradition with graphic designs and patterns often inspired by nature. The designs and colours range from calm and sophisticated to strong and more expressive.
All our textiles are manufactured in Europe, providing high quality and accountability for the environment. They are certified by Oeko-Tex 100 or REACH, which means that they are free from harmful chemicals.
GRAFFITI is a montage of photos of the Berlin Wall taken by the designer on a trip to Germany. It is printed on a dense quality cotton fabric.
“...a tension is created in the meeting between woven patterns and photographic pictures. A thought is aroused through these over-layers of surfaces and patterns. Which surface is in front of the other and what is in the gap between them? The space becomes a line between two expressions...” - Matilda Olsson
