Tzuri Gueta

Gueta is a rising star in the textile industry and in Parisian haute couture. He has developed original, surprisingly uncomplicated techniques for hybridizing natural fibers and synthetic polymers, sophisticated combinations of advanced polymer technology, and age-old textile traditions.

Using the unique properties of silicone, he extends the surface of fibers and fabrics beyond their physical boundaries, creating three-dimensional forms. His experimental, sophisticated work fascinated the textile and haute couture industry in Paris, where he lives and works.

Most of his developments have been registered as patents. Gueta's innovative creations were born through designing fabrics for haute couture designers (Louis Vuitton, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Givenchy, Chanel, Dior, etc.) who wanted unique accessories and items to replace precious stones and materials.

Gueta is a one-person guild. He is not a craftsman in the familiar sense of manual craftsmanship, nor he is an industrial designer in the usual sense of technical reproduction, nor a scientist focusing on the understanding of processes and their appropriation to enhance the quality of human life; he is a textile designer and a creator who realizes his dreams through textile.
