Maelstrom is a jacquard fabric in a graphic print featuring 70s inspired hoops, resonating with Maison Leleu’s iconic design. The fabric incorporates a beautiful weave that highlights threads and loaning the pattern a 3D visual effect.
Equinox was created to echo Maison Leleu’s emblematic rug. Delving into Ottoman style, this gorgeous pinned velvet on a textured linen base boasts a beautiful drape. Its geometric pattern is heightened by a strong colour palette.
Flabella is a jacquard fabric woven with a linen thread that creates a swollen, heavy Brocade-like effect. It features a highly decorative pattern inspired by an unmistakable art deco motif.
