Back in November last year, we gave everyone a sneak-peek at the debut of Bruno Lamy’s Mas d’Ousvan boutis fabric collection.
This month, we’re back with some very exciting news. The wonderful people of Shabby Fabrics are hosting a giveaway, and we’ve got the details on how to enter. Quilting enthusiasts, you’re in luck!
What is Mas d’Ousvan?
Here’s Bruno’s story on the creation of Mas d’Ousvan:
After ten years work of designing block-printed fabrics, I wanted to explore the delicate atmosphere of fine, old mansions, hidden in the mysterious landscapes of France. Thus, Mas d’Ousvan was launched in 2001, offering softer tones compared to the flamboyant colors of my block-printed linen collections across napkins and host of other kitchenware.
Mas d’Ousvan draws inspiration from old-world French designs, as well as printed textiles from India known in France as Les Indiennes. These nostalgic styles, which have been carefully conserved in textile workshops since the 17th century, can still be discovered here and there in the old chateaus and fine mansions of our lovely France.
With Mas d’Ousvan, I seek to pass on the soft memories of our secret resting places. Images of the delicate and precious atmosphere of the traditional farmhouses and villages of beautiful Provence invade my drawing board. Swamped with all these memories, I create new patterns or adapt an old design steeped in nostalgia. Beauty and Romance are the two young muses of this collection, filled with everlasting charm.
Lovely, isn’t it? It sounds like the dream of an artist, filled with old romance and beauty.
