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. To complete her practice, she was trained in natural dyeing with Anne Rieger, a master craftswoman.
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 for ladies and gents.
To complete her own collection, sophie selected some accessories "Made in France". Temporary exhibitions are also organized to present and defend the work of textile artists and craftsmen.
Sophie has taught since 2001 in different high school and conducts research workshops. She was awarded the Young Designers Contest of Ateliers d'art de France in 2004.
