Atelier Février

Founders of Atelier Février, Florian Pretet and Lisa Mukhia Pretet design together outstanding rugs skillfully hand-knotted in Nepal. Their pieces are the epitome of contemporary art fused with traditonal craftsmanship.

A graduate from the Parisian Fashion School Studio Bercot, Florian Pretet is a French designer who worked several years for a prestigious French fashion brand that led him to Kathmandu. Through Atelier Février, he breathes life into his drawing, translating them into beautiful design pieces.

Born and raised between Darjeeling and Kathmandu – where traditions are the culture’s cornerstone – Lisa Mukhia Pretet is  a keen entrepreneur with strong love for fashion and craft. Her work experience, exposing her to vernacular techniques, brought froward her fascination for craftsmanship that have been passed along for generations.

Real life partners, coming from different cultural and professional backgrounds, their association is drawn from those common passions for art, fashion, craft and expertise.

Background

Having honed his trade studying fashion design at Studio Bercot, Florian Pretet became head of production for hand woven cashmere and silk at Hermès. Then, he met Lisa Mukhia, a keen entrepreneur with a strong love for fashion and a deep knowledge of traditional Himalayan artisanship. Now, Lisa and Florian are married and business partners, combining their different cultural and professional backgrounds. Inspired by their shared passion for art, fashion, craft and expertise, they founded Atelier Février aiming at creating meaningful stories pairing traditional know-how with cutting edge aesthetics.
Lisa and Florian live between France and Nepal, busy creating the most fantastic hand-knotted rugs.

Signature Style

Striking one-off pieces made with the ancient Tibetan technique of hand-tied knots using a mixture of silk and wool or pure wool. The luxurious quality and feel of the rug are enhanced by its 190,000 knots per square meter. Tibetan wool is sought after for its high content of lanolin, which protects the rug over time, and allows it to age beautifully. The selected, finest silk from China is known for its brilliance and durability.
Their signature patterns and motifs are beautifully detailed and enhanced by combining the most unexpected colour palettes.
