LOEWE Launches Weaves Collection with Sotheby’s

By Eunice Chan

LOEWE announced this week the Weaves collection of unique artisan-crafted objects in collaboration with Sotheby’s. The project explores weaving as both a decorative and structure-building craft through chestnut roasters, woven leather bags, baskets, and accessories.

“Craft is one of my main interests: one that I’ve made cenral to LOEWE’s identity,” said LOEWE’s Jonathan Anderson.

The Gallacian chestnut roaster, the main focus of Weaves, is a handmade clay pot with multiple functional holes.  The design is an ideal playground for artists Arko from Japan, Min Chen from China, and Laia Arqueros from Spain to experiment with various weaving techniques.

Sotheby’s is exhibiting a selection of pieces by Arko, Chen, and Arqueros in New York May 1-May 12, available through the auction house’s Buy Now online marketplace. 

84 additional chestnut roasters were given to artisans in Loewe’s atelier to be reinterpreted. Using surplus from previous collections, the embellished roasters will be exhibited and available for purchase in stores around the world. 

“Playfulness is key: a desire to engage in a creative and experimental dialogue with materiality and shape. Our new project also reunites a series of decorative objects, crated by artisans and a line of bags and leather accessories,” said Anderson.

Woven leather bags (like LOEWE’s Balloon bag), baskets, and accessories are also released, available in stores and online from May 27.
