Karine Bonjean is the owner and lead designer of Evolution 21. As an experienced Interior Designer with a passion for texture, textiles and furniture, Karine found it difficult to source fabrics that matched her design plans. This motivated her to start creating her own textile designs, which has grown into what is now Evolution 21.
Evolution 21 is the only European textile designer to apply a unique creative process of first designing the fabric, then selecting each thread to ensure the texture and quality is exactly right before having the fabrics woven in either Belgium or Italy. Each fibre is dyed and washed before weaving to ensure colour fastness and to prevent shrinking. The result is beautiful, originally designed fabrics with a high rub count that are ideal for upholstery and drapery. Karine creates “Harmonies”, combining six fabrics by colour scheme and playing with weaves and textures to create collections that work perfectly together.
