Lodetex: Live from Proposte

Thursday, 9 May 2013

Italian brand Lodetex stands out at this year's edition of textile fair Proposte. Striking digital printed fabrics are presented in array of designs from soft and sophisticated ikats to contemporary pixel prints.

To maintain a hand painted feel, delicate stripes and painterly florals are created by hand at the brand's in-house design studio and translated into multicolour digital prints.

Impressionist painter Monet inspires the layers of ocean blues and greens of a speckle design, which create an almost iridescent finish when printed onto light weight silk.

Ombre squares appear to be sprayed painted directly onto sheer fabrics, with multi coloured pixelated florals and mirror repeats introducing a very contemporary direction for window treatments.
