The encounter between Art and Science As a textile designer by training, Tzuri Gueta explores the most original materials, combining traditional techniques with creative daring. Every season he and his team work with Parisian Haute Couture houses to create original fabrics, jewellery and ornaments. In his quest for textile materials, Gueta came upon silicone, and it soon became his signature material. This polymer, composed mostly of silica, possesses extraordinary properties of solidity and flexibility. By combining silicone with openwork textile materials, Gueta invented a technique of blowing silicone into lace. The technique was patented in 2005. Chanel, Givenchy, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Dior, Clarisse Hiéraix, Stéphane Rolland and Yiqing Yin are among the renowned fashion designers with whom Gueta regularly collaborates.
