Sophie Duran

i’ve been seeing Sophie Duran‘s work around the internet for a while now, so i was thrilled when she got in touch to tell me about her new print collection Undiscovered Wonders of the World.

Created out of self made photographes, old travel books and minerals, these unknown mysterious worlds are open to multiple interpretations. Inspired by Celtic, Norwegian, Indian and Greek ancient stories, every landscape has a name that gives slightly a clue of where you could explore it. All prints are digitally printed at the Audax Textile Museum Tilburg and CATDigital Glasgow, Scotland. As a material I used silk velvet and crepe de chine. The velvet gives vibrance to the colours and makes the landscapes look three-dimensional. Crepe de chine gives a lightness and sophisticated feeling to the prints. The designs are presented as scarfs (135cm x 135cm), finished with a 925 silver detail.

    Already know I can’t afford these, just by looking at them, but they sure are gorgeous.

    These are incredibly beautiful. What I love about them is that they are so beautiful when they are spread out and the imagery is more recognizable, but they are also equally beautiful when they are crumpled up and more abstract. Thanks for sharing!
