Côme Touvay, textile designer and artist, works between Paris and the southwest of France. He studied textile design and weaving at ENSCI in Paris and worked for many years with various fashion houses including Hermès, Cartier, Rochas and Renault design.
Côme participates at the Maison d’Exception and was awarded the ‘Lauréat du grand prix de la création de la Ville de Paris’ in 2006. He also received the ‘Henri Van de Velde’ award in 2006 for the creation of collection Nuée with the Belgian linen manufacturer Verilin.
Since 2017 he has also created his new studio where he weaves by hand unique textile pieces bordering between the frontiers of art and design. He also teaches textile and weaving at ENSCI in Paris.
While his research is focused on different cultures and essential textile techniques, his creations demonstrate a language without frontiers, nomadic in nature, with the combination of a spectrum of textures and chromatic harmonies.
