The Private Collection
The patterns are all drawn or hand painted by Helene Blanche herself which gives them a unique depth and vibrant feeling, making each a work of art of its own, and is completed by being printed by craftsmen whose skills have been passed down through generations. The collection is designed in collaboration with TAPET-CAFE.
“I constantly experiment with hand drawing, using a mix of charcoal, ink and watercolour to create the first sketches of a pattern. I believe that it is important to maintain an open and playful work progress, so that the finished design is as dynamic and vivacious as the process behind it. It’s not all about prettiness and perfection, but also about playing and experimenting with colours and scale.“ Helene Blanche, textile designer
