Miming Upholstery fabric by FANNY ARONSEN
Miming Upholstery fabric
This is Miming – Light and Shadow
With inspiration from the Art Deco, which is transferred to a contemporary design, with big circles placed regularly over the fabric. The broad line gives the circles a strong appearance and the effect of how the light is falling on the fabric gives a spectacular result. Miming is woven on a jacquard loom with two beams in a W-binding, which is a special construction for velvet fabrics. The pile is made of 100% mohair and the backing in 100% cotton. Mohair is the lustrous, silky white hair of the Angora goat, which wool has a strong natural shine and a high durability.
The pattern is created by using the effect of light and shadow, where the pile of the circles is woven in one direction and the background in the opposite direction. Even though the same colour is used it seems as if there are two colours at play, a dark and a brighter version. These shimmer and change depending on the angle from which you look at it. This way, the design artfully plays with the lighting – and the appearance of the fabric is ever changing. The colours are chosen to under stripe the effect of the design like aubergine, warm orange and sophisticated black.
Miming is also the name of a forest troll from Nordic mythology, who has a bracelet that brings good fortune to the person who carries it. But he is most famous for his magic sword that can kill even those, who are invincible.
