Unio Paris Mens FW2019

UNIO
Luxurious silky scarves from Master Weavers of France by Leila Altamirova 
The idea of UNIO was born during Leila’s visit to the archives of Lyon where the centuries-old secrets of the city’s silks are held.
She learned there, about the beautiful and exclusive weaving techniques practiced by some of the oldest manufacturers in France.
The Master Weavers guided her through centuries of traditional know-how, and this has inspired her to share this heritage with a new clientele.
UNIO scarves are created today in Lyon, which was the final destination along the Silk Road.
The production house Leila has selected is one of the most prestigious in France and was founded in 1929.
There is a nice synchronicity with this and the decade chosen as inspiration for the design of her scarves – the great roaring 20s!
Scarf sizes are all 220 x 70 centimeters and are available in two sophisticated styles which exude symbols of authority and continuity drawn from the iconic designs of medieval heraldry, Art Nouveau and Art Deco.

About the designer Leila Altamirova
Following in her ancestor’s footsteps, Leila’s love and passion for vintage and objets d’arts led her to archives in Lyon where the centuries-old secrets of the city’s silk trade is held. There she learned about the exclusive weaving techniques practiced by some of the oldest manufacturers in France. The Master Weavers guided her through centuries of traditional know-how, inspiring her to share this heritage with a new clientele.
Leila says: “Luxury is not about clever marketing and photography, luxury is about recognizing one’s own self-worth, which we choose to embody and radiate in the beautiful clothes and accessories that we wear. When we recognize our value lies within not without then we are truly rich.”
