WABI-SABI

Latitude Magazine - - FASHION -

Mokum’s Ar­ti­san Col­lec­tion is an­other col­lec­tion to get ex­cited about. The col­lec­tion draws on the tra­di­tional Ja­panese con­cept of wabi-sabi, a phi­los­o­phy whereby beauty is not only found, but cel­e­brated in the im­per­fect, im­per­ma­nent and in­com­plete.

A rus­tic mix of lux­ury upholstery, drap­ery and ac­ces­sory tex­tiles, the beau­ti­fully cu­rated col­lec­tion boasts a re­fined, earthen colour pal­ette de­signed to en­cour­age peo­ple to pull away from the dig­i­tal screen and into the present mo­ment through tac­ti­cal ex­pe­ri­ences in the home. De­sign di­rec­tor Stephanie Mof­fitt com­ments, ‘With this col­lec­tion we sought to con­tem­po­rise crafts­man­ship and show­case the im­print of time­less tex­tile tech­niques. We worked with spe­cial­ist weav­ing struc­tures, lux­ury yarns and ar­ti­sanal print­ing and fin­ish­ing process to cre­ate sub­tly com­plex tex­tiles in a pal­ette that feels both mod­ern and nos­tal­gic.’
