HORIZONTAL CHENILLE STRIPESBarré; the French word for a ballet dancers’ handrail upon which a hand is rested whilst performing the next plié, and an adopted term used in textiles to describe horizontal stripes in weaving.This unique collection of horizontal striped, bar designs have been created by combining a venetian structure with a bold combination of thick, textured chenille yarns, and fine, regular wool worsted yarns.For technical reasons, chenille yarn can only be woven in the weft direction of the fabric. As this yarn brings so much character to the fabrics in this collection, the decision was made to weave accordingly and introduce a collection of fabrics entirely of weft stripes.Whilst the collection has been designed with the stripes in the horizontal direction, for those that prefer the classic vertical orientation, the fabrics can be turned 90 degrees.
