EMMA FRANCE is based in Berlin, Germany

BIO

Emma France Raff is a textile designer and artist based in Berlin. She was born in 1982 in South France, daughter of a german multicultural artist couple.

She grew up in Berlin and South Portugal and has lived in Porto and Paris before returning to the german capital in 2009.
After completing an art and mathematics focused high school she graduated in textile design at the Modatex School of Textile and Fashion in Porto.

Now she works with established european textile and trend companies, like Nelly Rodi and Adalberto Estampados and runs several projects of her own such as Raubdruckerin, creating Hats and Accessories or designing costumes for performances.

Her work is devoted to the use of handmade techniques, the combination of apparently opposing materials (from precious to waste) and the interaction of visual art with textile and fashion design. With an emphasis on ecological issues in terms of production, recycling and the life cycle of materials, she takes a critical approach against mass production.

The essential theme of beauty forms the common element, which is running through her entire work.
