Cloth Tone Weekend

Together, Larissa Beringer and Lindsay Lorraine have been designing and weaving as a partnership since 2018- exploring what it means to make slow cloth in a sustainable and embodied way - broadly exploring themes related to the body, labor, environment and materiality. In July 2019, Cloth Tone invited four artists to join them in the Okanagan for a weekend of foraging, natural dyeing, cooking, swimming and skill sharing on themes across their individual practices. The Cloth Tone Weekend nurtured new relationships and a feeling of wholeness through the simple act of slowing down in an open, creative space. There was an acknowledgment for the necessity of human connection in creating a sustainable future. So, with a commitment to engaging in curatorial projects that gather artists together under themes related to contemporary textiles, sustainability, the body and our well-being - the exhibition Cloth Culture took shape. If we turn our attention to cloth as a means for living sustainably into the future what are the possible outcomes?

ADHOC Penticton COMMISSION

ADHOC Interior Textiles

Jan-May 2019

We’re so proud of the one-of-a kind, custom, handwoven textiles we designed and wove for Virginia Bray, owner of ADHOC in Penticton, B.C. The series of eight curtain panels function both as a decorative, textured backdrop and as a series of functional change room curtains. Woven using natural undyed, unbleached linen, hemp, cotton and wool intermixed with details of plant dyed wool (marigold, goldenrod and onion skins) spun by Larissa’s grandmother, Ilse Beringer, the panels offer privacy and translucency of light simultaneously. Throughout the store you’ll find chunky cotton/linen chair covers and our classic pillows slips on down filled cushions. The combination of white walls, eclectic lighting, handmade plywood shelving and independent fashion labels create the perfect back drop for Cloth Tone’s unique aesthetic to shine.

OSMICS for CLOTH TONE

Ochre Teal is a Cloth Tone scent, designed by Jen Weih of Osmics. It captures the aromatic flora and scent of summer breeze along the shores of Okanagan Lake and up into the sandy hills of ponderosa pine and sage. The subtle blend of cedar, balsam, bergamot and sage is a perfect companion for the body and home- not only does it purify the air and awaken your senses - it chases away the moths in your cloth cupboards as well!
