Écharpe de portage, Matilda


This is the latest creation from Hubertine’s atelier.

Once again the pattern has required several attempt in order to reproduce its outstanding aspect: a vanishing pattern, filled with details.

It’s name was inspired by the halo effect created by the contrast in materials and colors which makes the evasive pattern stand out with regards to its structure. This halo effect also has a parallel meaning: the one bringing certain people in the light at the expense of others left in the shadow despite their great contribution. This brought us to a phenomenon that concerns mainly women who’s scientific breakthrough were credited to their masculine colleagues. This is called the “Matilda effect”.
We wanted to pay tribute to these women and contribute in our own way to the recognition of their achievement.
