Elsa Poux, founder of French brand Ma Poésie, lives and works in Paris. While studying at the École Nationale des Arts Décoratifs, she discovered India and its traditional crafts. After training as a couture embroiderer at École Lesage, she worked with the ready-to-wear brand Ventilo. Finally, she embarked on the Ma Poésie adventure, initially creating inventive, modern and colourful scarves. Open to ethnic influences, curious about architecture, design and painting, she professes an eclectic style. She now offers a decoration line including pieces for the home and for the bath. Always concerned with the quality of the materials used in her creations, Elsa Poux works with craftspeople whose know-how she values.
The meeting between PINTON and Ma Poésie was an evidence. For PINTON Elsa Poux imagined, among others, the Element rug recalling the pieces of a jigsaw puzzle. This work on shapes, colours, materials and textures fits perfectly in the designer’s contemporary and colourful world.
