La Gadoue Atelier Textile design

Both graduates of the Design Academy Eindhoven, Eloïse Maës and Audrey Werthle call themselves ‘designers that work with our bare hands.’ In an increasingly dematerialised world their aim is to reconnect people to their environment, reinventing techniques and processes that can create bridges between industry and crafts. Forging sustainable objects that are free from ephemeral trends, the pair develops creative solutions and products for companies, architects, individuals, other designers and artists.
Maës and Werthle have developed a plant and natural textile that is akin to leather. This textile is the result of research into a natural latex-based coating on linen, jute and hemp canvases. This composite material is a plant alternative to synthetic fabrics (PU type), but also an alternative to animal leather and can be qualified as vegan leather. Creating their own artisanal coating technique, the material is distinguished by the uniqueness of its appearance: patterns, stripes, smooth, satiny or glossy. Full of possibilities, the material is flexible, waterproof, very solid, and can be used for interior furnishings, ‘leatherwork’ and fashion pieces...
