CLOTH TONE is a collaborative textile studio created by Larissa Beringer and Lindsay Lorraine. We design and weave textiles that evoke a strong relationship to materiality, texture, and comfort. Our work is strongly rooted in our love and respect for the ecosystem that we live in; the plants, animals and all things living. We create cloth that nourishes our need for warmth, touch, and positive energies.
Larissa Beringer is a textile artist and art librarian. She studied at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design and at McGill University. Her practice is driven by an interest in cumulative knowledge and interconnectedness intrinsic with embodied sensorial experience and memory. Larissa approaches textiles much like language and considers weaving a means for exploring ideas, nuance and poetry. Her work is driven by an interest in the historical narrative behind material objects and their ability to communicate lived experience. Larissa’s grandmother was a spinner, natural dyer and weaver and inspires much of her practice.
Lindsay Lorraine graduated from the Emily Carr University of Art and Design and Red Deer College. Lindsay's work explores process through creating textiles, designs, videos and animations. Through traditional weaving practices and the use of color and material she explores ideas around consumerism, femininity and livelihood.
