I'm a French - American textile designer who currently live in Barcelona. I'm passionate about patterns, weaving and discovering new biomaterials. Working in the Fab Textiles in Fab Lab Barcelona broadened my perspectives of design & fashion industry. Today, one of my driving motivation is to continue to discover methods, materials that are ethically sound and sustainable.
