Designer Profile - Denis Colomb

Born in Aix en Provence, France, designer Denis Colomb graduated from the famed I.S.A.D. Institute Superior Architecture and Design in Milan. While practicing architecture, his penchant for exotic travel and his affinity for eastern cultures often drew him to the Far East, where in 1996 he produced his first collection of hand-woven Tibetan rugs made in small ateliers in Nepal. Blending pure line and geometric form with real materials, Denis Colomb’s aesthetic is a perfect marriage of modernist and centuries old Asian and European techniques.

In 2003 while working with local artisans in Nepal, Colomb began experimenting with Mongolian cashmere: the finest in the world, designing the first of his incredible hand loomed blankets. Now he works with workshops where many Hermes items are also made, and has been able to perfect the textures and colors for his exquisite scarves, shawls and wraps.
