I felt flashed the first time I saw some cushions and plaids of Anke Drechsel. It was like diving into another world, into the world of tales of thousand and one nights... Silk velvet in the most astonishing colours, embroidery so gentle and fine, paterns and designs sometimes slightly modern, sometimes flowery and rich. Every single piece telling a story...
In the attention to detail you see the love and the utterly perfect
craftsmanship offered by only a very few artisans. This
craftmanship is a mix of fine hand embroidery, embroidery achieved
with a small hand-guided machine and a very work intensive haute
couture technique. Combine all this with a lady so lovely and warm
and you don´t have to wonder why Anke Drechsel is known in the
most sophisticated circles from Tokyo to New York!
For tiiset rooms we designed a range of cushion and plaids, the
embroidery tone on tone with the silk velvet. On customer demand
the colours of the silk velvet and the patern of embroidery are
being chosen, making every piece unique and telling her own
