CathAm Soie is a young Fashion House from Lyon founded by Catherine Amaz, a Parisian stylist, brought up with the tradition of 'haute couture' in association with her husband, Jacques, a visual artist and professor of art history.
The material of preference of CathAm is silk. Sumptuous wild silk in shimmering tones, and traditional iridescent silks. At CathAm threads are dyed before weaving. Then two different colours are chosen to create the fabric. This is the reason that the fabric is so shimmery and changes constantly with CathAm creations.
The styles are all created by CathAm designers. They combine the originality of shapes and the simplcity of use. ''These scarves are equipped with cords or buttons and sliding systems, which allow to easily make changes. You need next to nothing to offer a range of different possibilities - a jacket, collar, wrap-over top, Indian head-piece, belt.. Easily adjusted, meaning anyone is capable of creating a new outfit each day - stylish for parties or more casual for daily life'. (article by Isabelle Brione for Le Progrès)
CathAm also offers a selection of sophisticated, high quality Pashminas wool from Mongolia.
By appointment, we are pleased to present our design workshop, which gives you a behind-the-scenes look at the different stages in the creation of new CathAm designs, from the first sketches to the final prototype. Come join us for an inside look!
