Looking to mark 40 years producing head-turning textiles, Dedar brought together the designer Martino Gamper and photographer Brigitte Niedermair, long-time friends but never collaborators. A slow-loading Google search led the pair to hidden patterns, an accidental index of artists and their favourite colours. Dedar fixed these patterns on remarkable fabrics and Gamper gave them form and volume. The results are a fitting tribute to a history of innovation, hand-craft and a commitment to the creative spirit. And, more than anything, proof that there’s power in a union.

The Dedar and Hermes fall collections are here. These are two beautiful collections showing a concise and tight design aesthetic from both houses. Dedar brings some extraordinary sheers as well as complicated and striking weaves and Hermes builds on the past two collections. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you would like to see and touch what is possible when you push mills.
Dedar Milano uses a great many weaves to produce their luxurious textiles. Occasionally I'll post some off the more interesting ones. This post deals with a Lampas Brocade
Lampas is a type of luxury fabric with a background weft (a "ground weave") typically in taffeta with supplementary wefts (the "pattern wefts") laid on top and forming a design, sometimes also with a "brocading weft". Lampas is typically woven in silk, and often has gold and silver thread enrichment. Lampas weaves were developed around 1000 CE. Beginning late in the 17th century western lampas production began centered in Lyon, France, where an industry of providing for French and other European courts became centered.

Protected leather is a full grain leather that is dyed for color and receives pigment to ensure color consistency. The pigment also ensures fade resistance, which helps the leather wear less over time. A clear water-based topcoat is also applied to these hides for additional protection. Protected leathers are easy to maintain and have maximum resistance to wear, soiling, and fading from light. Also, the natural imperfections of these hides are less noticeable. These leathers are priced competitively and are great for contract and high traffic areas.
