Lenka Kühnertová’s first collection, which premiered in 2012, was inspired by one of Haruki Murakami’s novels. She learned the Japanese shibori technique for this collection. To bring palpably sensual textiles with visual codes into the world as shawls, scarves and articles of clothing has also become the concept of the Kühnertová Manufacture. But the written word is neither retold nor illustrated; instead, the aim is to preserve a mood generated by language. Months go by from the initial idea, through the analogue production steps, to the fabrication and presentation. With choice fabrics and idiosyncratic designs, Kühnertová’s meticulously styled textile accessories convey the echo of their underlying literature into daily life.
