Weaving makes it possible to experience time with its attractive slow pace and guarantees the freedom and the unexpected of a creative process. By speaking the technical language on the one hand and by listening to the characteristics of natural materials on the other hand, Hélène Borgers manufactures works with their own textured story.

Her work consists of two parts, Textile Projects and Limited Collections, two different translations with the same objective... Expressing the fascination for time traces in unique, tactile creations.
