Passionate about imagination and beautiful materials, I draw the world as I see it: colorful, vibrant and full of stories. Nothing like silk to tell my stories, to wear them, to interpret them, to share them. Ojie is a story that takes shape and expresses itself to the rhythm of silk. Unique and authentic patterns carefully drawn by hand that offerinfinite possibilities of appropriation and interpretation for those who wear it.. Through these colorful patterns, a world emerges, the one you imagined. Animated by the pattern, the Ojie silk scarf pushes the limits of the imaginary..
From Princess XiÂ Ling Shi to our silk fabrics from Lyon, the history of silk has traveled the world and time before becoming this noble material prized by the greatest houses of French haute couture.Initially, silk was reserved exclusively for the familyimperial Chinese, but very quickly France seized this noble material thanks, it is said, to Louis XI who would have decided to build the first production of silk in France in Lyon. Before being silk, the precious thread produced by worms, says Bombyx, undergoes a whole process in order to be prepared for its future use. First of all, the threads are twisted, that is to say twisted several times between them in order to obtain a supple silk. The silk is then scoured before being dyed and then woven on a loom that interweaves warp and weft threads, which gives these oblique grooves characteristic of silk twill. These type of weaving allows a unique color vibrancy specific to silk twill.
The motif is obtained by repeating drawings at a regular pace. It is the regularity of the rhythm which gives the motif this indefinite, infinite character. In the world of textiles, there are several different patterns: placed, semi-placed, all-over, etc. Whether geometric, floral or arabesque, the pattern has been around for millennia. It is used for dressing, coloring, tapestries, objects, clothes, etc. The pattern gives the wearer a unique timeless character due to its infinity. A fun trick, it has been subject to interpretation since the dawn of time, arouses curiosity and invites discussion. It was at the beginning of the 17th century that the woven pattern appeared on silk. Whether woven or printed, the pattern is still talking about it.
