Barbillon Collection


Rugs & Carpets

The Manufacture de Tapis de Bourgogne reinterprets through its know-how a serie of drawings by Elsa Barbillon – Les Rêves / The Dreams into the finest custom carpets.

“Landscape, geology and astronomy are recurring themes in my drawing work. For this collection, four dreams have been mapped – Caldeira, Zephyr, Eclipse and Arroyo. Each dream is above all an invitation to reconnect, to cultivate a sensitive relationship with the world and our daily life.” – Elsa Barbillon

The collection:

Caldeira, Eclipse, Zéphyr, Arroyo

  • Caldeira is a geological formation of volcanic type; an extinct crater often filled with water that corresponds to the subsidence on itself of the volcanic chamber.
  • Eclipse is an astronomical phenomenon that we all know and that we should avoid watching right in the eyes.
  • Zephyr is the name of a soft and warm westerly / north-westerly wind. I found it interesting to assimilate the vibration of the pencil to a wind which would make the grass of a meadow vibrate by example.
  • Arroyo is the name given to small dry rivers that can swell in the rain. They often create very sinuous and free designs because their bed is not deep.
