Laurentine Périlhou

Laurentine Périlhou is an artist and thread craftswoman specializing in macramé techniques.
She learned the art empirically from a Chilean craftsman during a trip to South America in 2009. Unexplored in the diversity of forms it can take, she brings this manual textile art, based on a succession of knots, into her world.

She began her career with ornamental creations combining fine stones and macramé. Then in 2018, she put her savoir-faire to work in the worlds of objects, space, and fashion for perennial or ephemeral, high-end, and luxury projects. Hence able to explore a wide range of universes, she collaborates with some of the world's finest fashion houses, including Jean-Paul Gaultier, Loewe, Balmain, and Dior.

Since 2021, along with her bespoke commissions, she has been developing a personal artistic approach centered on vegetal themes. Wildflowers and clovers grow on her canvases, with meticulous craftsmanship becoming the medium through which ideas take shape.
