A plain woven fabric, a TELA, is the same front and back: it has always the same aspect, it shows itself as it is and it makes you think of a genuine product, which originates from good taste rather than being thought – thru and conceptual. TELA in Italian refers to the painting canvas as well and as such, iaboutt is an expression of a mood, of a feeling, of an art
In the tailors’ jargon the term is used to mean the first prototype, by which you get a first impression of what the final garment may look like. The concept of TELA carries intrinsically an idea of versatility, being a material which can be, dyed, printed, washed, ripped, ironed … TELA is also equivalent to a new project, as a first concept to a book writer, as the white canvas could be for a painter. All this does not imply that the project is anonymous or generic, quite the opposite, it expresses its potentiality.
Creative Director, Federica Mora, is the woman behind the brand Tela.
