The Killa Standing Mirror Large has been designed by Pauline Deltour after she studied the weaving techniques in local Colombian when she visited the country. The tall mirror with its obround shape and basket-like frame, hand-woven with fibres of the Iraca palm, makes a striking accent piece in any bedroom or hallway
The mirror is made in the Departamento Nariño in South West Colombia, where working with the natural material Iraca has a long tradition. The preparation of the material takes six days and the weaving of the decorative frame additional six days. Historically, the artesanos weave hats, bags, purses, ornaments and individual one-of-a-kind pieces with the fibres of the palm. The material holds its shape and is very durable. The fibres are dyed using natural methods with seeds, leaves, nuts and roots and some mineral materials are also used to create different colour sections. After the dyeing process, the fibres are drained and need to be left to dry for several days. Only then can the artesanos process the material. With the help of tweezers, needles and tongs, they weave the frame by hand, using different types of stitching
Born in France, Pauline Deltour’s aesthetic is defined by being strikingly simple and beautifully detailed at once. Her designs showcase a curiosity in the qualities of the raw materials and transferring production techniques between disciplines. Pauline Deltour joined ames founder Ana Maria Calderón Kayser on a trip to Colombia to study the local materials first hand and learn from the artisans about the traditional weaving techniques. Back in her Paris studio, where she develops furniture and product designs for international brands, Deltour designed a range of furniture and living accessories for ames
