This print was conceived in the French studio Atelier Brunette. Designer Annabelle Kumar’s timeless patterns escape the latest fads and draw on the artist’s own harmonious color palette. That means her fabrics always combine well and, if Annabelle’s color space is your cup of tea, you can be sure that you’ll always find something you like.
Hilma River is inspired by the work of Swedish painter Hilma af Klint. Her groundbreaking abstract art employed peculiar geometric and organic shapes and paved the way for a generation of artists to follow. This print evokes an abstract floral pattern with perfectly harmonized tones of rust, blush, and blue like a summer sky reflected in a river.
What to use it for
This fine serge, or twill, is made of EcoVero. It makes a lovely blouse or dress (try it for a wrap-around, a shirt dress, or a simple A-line cut) and is nice for a full skirt, a circle skirt or loose pants. It is a supple fabric with a nice drape and very comfortable. EcoVero is beautifully soft and breathable. We use it for loungewear, nightshirts, and pajamas.
Good for the planet
EcoVero is rayon’s eco-friendly cousin. The trademark, owned by Lenzing, is only applied to rayon viscose made to strict sustainability standards. The raw material is wood from sustainably managed forests. The manufacturing process itself, from tree to fiber, has been optimized to minimize its impact on the environment. In terms of water consumption, chemical use, and overall carbon footprint, EcoVero rayon is the most ecological textiles currently available, surpassing even other environmentally friendly rayons such as modal and lyocell. What’s more, it’s entirely recyclable!
