Sophie Guyot builts its approach to textile design by querying the relationship between material, color and function. She learned in high school Diderot in Lyon and at Winchester University in England. She deepened tie and dye techniques with Mauritanian dyers, during a long trip to West Africa. Then, she trained in natural dyeing with Anne Rieger, a french master craftswoman dyer.
In her studio shop on the slopes of the Croix-Rousse in Lyon, she creates silks, ornaments and crafts textile objects in a contemporary style.
