Presenting an exhibition of basketry, hand quilting and calligraphy for our fifth project at the annual Salone del Mobile in Milan. After four appearances at the furniture fair, we are returning for 2019 with our most ambitious instalment, giving voice to time-honoured weaving techniques and the masters who maintain them.
We have challenged traditional artists from around the world to work in a new medium — leather — which puts traditional basket makers front and centre by casting their creations in a contemporary light. These masters of handcraft have produced a series of exclusive objets d’art for the exhibition. In addition, we have commissioned leading Spanish artisans to create a collection of bags, accessories and home decorations to accompany the exhibition and be made available for purchase.
Since our foundation, we have nurtured the talents of artisans in pursuit of quality. The LOEWE Baskets exposition draws on our commitment to craft by helping to conserve these practices and give them context in a modern setting.
LOEWE Baskets is now available at selected stores and loewe.com.
