& Solar Slow Fashion

Designed and handcrafted by Lia, each collection is born in her workshop in Mile-End, Montreal, Canada.

Lia takes great care in the finishes details, choice of materials, all natural, with a predilection for flax fiber.

 

Portrait of the artist.

A graduate of History of Art/Archeology and Visual Arts, Lia grew up by the ocean (French Basque country) in a very pronounced Beach/Surf culture.

A DNA that nourishes her work and approach.

At a very young age, she discovered a passion for thread and knitted her first sweater at 13 years old. A practice that has never left her, that she has nurtured, over the years, by expanding her techniques (crochet, weaving, embroidery....) Her watchword and medium, : Thread, in all its forms.

''My work is structured in 2 stages : 

1-A summer Capsule collection, handmade, promise of an endless summer :)

2-My weavings, textile expression & ancestral craftmanship that resonates in me like a permanence, 

a heritage (family and human), my love for meticulous work where time has no hold.

In each of my practices, I see a Ariadne's trail. My path. My passion.''

As Kurt Vonnegut said :

''The practice of Art isn't to make a living. It's to make your soul grow.''

Thank you very much for the visit and if you have any questions, want to collaborate, 

that will be my pleasure to answer you.

Take care, 

Lia.
