CLOTH TONE collaborates with designers, retailers, artists, writers and anyone else with a passion for handwoven textiles and cloth culture. Our collaborations have led to exhibitions, custom interior textiles, pop-up shops, private commissions, custom aromatherapy oils and an ever growing community of slow cloth supporters!

Small, curated selections of our handwoven textiles are available at Ad Hoc / Penticton, the Polygon Gallery Shop / Vancouver, or by private commission.

Contact us if you’re interested in collaborating or would like to receive invitations to our upcoming events! We’d love to hear from you,

CLOTH CULTURE

Oct 3 - Nov 17, 2019

CLOTH CULTURE Oct 3 - Nov 17, 2019  Cloth Tone, in collaboration with the Lake Country Art Gallery, has curated an exhibition opening Oct 3! The exhibition, Cloth Culture, brings together six contemporary artists to explore the tacit emotional and experiential resonance achieved through the active labor of material production and bodily awareness. Works by Cloth Tone (Larissa Beringer and Lindsay Lorraine), Beth Howe, Zoe Kreye, Tiziana La Melia and Holly Ward manipulate and engage with varying textile materials and time-intensive (slow) processes to produce a series of propositional works that value an underlying investment in labor, mobility, and self-engagement. Revealing a sensitivity to the inherit value of bodily experience, tactility and form - a certain vibrancy calls attention to these artists’ relationship to our basic human needs for tactile experience, meditative movement, nature and local economies of scale. In turn, Cloth Culture challenges our relationship to cloth, craft and consumption.

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.
