Lou de Pray deliberately strayed from tradition. For this first collection, I chose machine stitching to maintain delicate and discrete lines. A choice that was bold, risky, miles away from the happy and carefree fluidity of a pencil’s lines. It is a method that requires constant attention and a high level of precision at the moment when the needle pierces the fabric. It can be smooth and soft, or bright and fine depending on the chosen thread, and its results will always vary depending on the fabric.
The silky and delicate thread is made of 100% viscose. It is a high-quality material whose origins are entirely plant-based.
