Its expert knowledge of ancient hand-weaving techniques gives the LISIO Foundation a versatility that can also be invaluable for the design of contemporary textiles. New, specially designed motifs can be created for a customer’s exclusive use, with a modular repeat or positioned as required. Extensive research is carried out to find the best way of producing each motif, combining modern designs with ancient weaving techniques or classic designs with the latest yarns. Experiments may also be carried out using ancient manual systems in an attempt to achieve particular effects found in original samples. This approach of experimentation and research has proved ideal for the production of limited quantities of exclusive creations for High Fashion.
