KISANY is very proud to present our latest collaboration with Thierry Struvay and Greg Ewing. The art of vintage tattoos reimagined through embroidery.We first met Thierry Struvay, a Brussels-based gallery owner with a passion for art and beautifully made things in 2020. For several years now, he has been organising a pop-up event at the flagship Natan store in Bruxelles, each time showcasing different artists with offbeat and original tones . And in 2020 we at KISANY were happy to be a part of the Christmas Black Market event.For this year’s pop-up, Thierry envisioned creating a unique collection of curated linens dedicated to the avant garde client. So he called on his friend Greg Ewing, a graphic designer and illustrator, to help him with this project. Greg creates logos and visual identities for many Belgian brands and is also a fan of old tattoos.Together they came up with a new, more rock and roll collection, inspired by the convict tattoos of the 1920s and 1930s. At that time, tattoos were worn by bad boys and were very much frowned upon by society. They sported themes such as roses, daggers, chains, etc. Meaning something ? There is currently a lot of documentation on this subject which inspired them to take up the codes and colours of the time to create and reinterpret very current designs.And the artisans at KISANY translated this vision into a limited-edition collection which provided close to 212 days of work. With its emblematic colours, this collection includes: napkins, kitchen towels, a guest hand towel, small cushions, little pouches pouches and a dog waste bag. Each piece carefully hand-embroidered by our partner atelier in Goma celebrates the artwork for this collection and is made to last.Discover the collection at XMAS BLACK MARKET, at Natan, 78 rue de Namur, 1000 Brussels until 22 December.
