Today, in the slamming of the smooth of her japanese weaving Saori she realizes wall hanging textiles works thought as inheritances. A being imagined and narrated by Karine herself, between personal mythology and dreamlike characters.

Karine doesn’t create simple clothes. She weaves, through each piece, links, bridges between the visible and the invisible, the real and the dreamlike. Hand weaving, vegetable fibers, silk, natural dye and natural pine cones’s scales; Each piece, unique and precious, is intimately linked to nature, bringing us closer to the earth and taking us to other spheres
