Concini, an exceptional silk fabric

        La Maison Pierre Frey continues to honor the unique know-how of craftsmen and the richesness of the fabrics left by Le Manach house. Inspired from its original 17th century archive, Concini is an emblematic drawing taken from the heritage collection of Le Manach. A true aesthete, Pierre Frey reproduces the same ancestral gesture, selects the best experts to revive an edition of this exceptional warp print, reproducing its subtle patterns and colours to the “blurred” effect that is so characteristic.

A METICULOUS AND DELICATE WEAVING PROCESS

The beauty of this very refined fabric needs a patient and precise fabrication process. In several steps, the 10 000 silky yarns of the fabric’s warp are first printed before being woven in a second time. 46 meters of the final fabric represents approximatly 140 hours work.

Those requirements are essential to create this incomparable subtlety that cannot be achieved with modern methods. Conceived by excellent manufacturers in Zurich and Lyon, Concini is a true jewel of textile crafts.
