Transforming rye straw

  • • Léna adapts old techniques to current trends
  • • She embraces imperfections in her process
  • • She wants to re-humanise textiles

Following a career in the design industry, Léna Perraguin decided to open her own workshop to start her craft weaving business. After launching her studio in 2018, the graduate from Ensci-Les ateliers in Paris, signed her first natural linen solo collection for interior decoration. Her style ingeniously adapts the technique of arm weaving on a loom and various braiding techniques inspired by basketry and macramé to result in tailor made creations. She specialises in weaving and braiding French rye straw for interior decoration and packaging, taking inspiration from ancestral textile techniques of different cultures. Her work expresses the natural beauty of raw materials, revealing their true nature, strength, and sensitivity.
