An innovator in weaving and fabrics edition for interior design, Métaphores is a celebrated brand, inspiring and contemporary, sister company of Hermès, belonging to its textile division.
Métaphores, the finest of French signatures, brings together the centenarian know-how of Verel de Belval for silk furnishings and Le Crin for hand-woven horsehair, as well as the mastery of textile materials with remarkable sensory and visual creativity.
Métaphores fabrics are born of a subtle alchemy between materials, history and gesture, supported by its rigorous choice of partners and careful selection of raw materials. This overarching sustainable development approach lowers the environmental impact of the collections.
Only one workshop in the world continues to weave horsehair by hand using rare know-how. It takes infinite patience and precise and sure gestures acquired over long months of apprenticeship to create these singular weaves, strand by strand. The technique demands such attention to detail that only a few metres are woven each day.
