French company, Élitis wows with its new and never-before-achieved collection of wall coverings, titled Coco Shells.
Made from the shells of fallen coconuts, the natural patterns and textures are layered in a unique mosaic. The range features four designs namely Visayas, Mindanao, Camarines and Palawan – all handcrafted using 100% coconut on polyester mesh backing to achieve a unique wallcovering, ideal for statement or feature walls either in a residential or commercial setting.
Under the sun of the archipelago, patience and meticulousness unite to give the craftsmen’s finest work. Beautiful, original and individually textured to suit a tailored interior, it’s a fine achievement from an innovatory textile brand.
‘Emotion can neither be added on nor imitated. It is the seed, the work of the flower.’ – Georges Braque
