NUMEN (def.) : A divine power believed to inhabit a particular object.
NUMEN is a representation of the cycle of nature, from birth to death. This cycle applies to all living things and all natural elements on Earth. Textile is one of them and strictly follows this cycling principle of circulation. NUMEN has a primitive essence, based on our own relation we have with nature through our practices, by working only with natural elements and by exploring longstanding traditional expression that can find a spirited contemporary form.
