Diverse applications: Elodie Blanchard’s fabric collection for HBF Textiles

French designer Elodie Blanchard has designed a collection of eight fabric designs for HBF Textiles. Each piece takes everyday objects and transforms them into textiles with diverse design applications. The collection for HBF Textiles includes Foundation, Twist, Moving Blanket, Remember Houndstooth and Forge and Dot Structure, which are certified Sunbrella Contract indoor/outdoor fabrics.

Foundation has a palette of earthy hues that create natural texture. Twist uses pigments ranging from complex neutral tweeds to vibrant hues; this textural combination includes acrylic/cotton for wool-like bulk, linen for fine texture and polyester for a twist of strength. Moving Blanket was designed with a chevron pattern using a matelassé structure to enhance its padded construction. Remember Houndstooth, a pull-out design from Blanchard’s Remember fabric, is enlarged 200 percent to create a large-scale, classic black-and-white houndstooth. Meanwhile, Forge’s colorations reflect metallic hues – gold, pewter, platinum, copper, silver, nickel and steel. This Sunbrella-certified performance fabric has vinyl-coated yarns, which are suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.
