SOOTHING DEPTH & WARMTH

"How do I want to feel when I'm in an office?" was the question Elodie asked herself when HBF Textiles commissioned her to do a collection of multi-purpose fabrics. Not surprisingly, most people want to feel as far from an office as possible -perhaps on a cloud, or atop a mountain, or on the wings of a butterfly. Evoking those experiences is a stretch, but Elodie works closely with textile mills to capture the colors, patterns and textures that may conjure pleasanter environs."
