Analisse, can you introduce yourself?

Hello, my name is Analisse Taft-Gersten. I am the owner and founder of the showrooms
ALT for Living and co-founder of the 1818 Collective. I am very honored to participate in this
newsletter! I have worked with PERRINE for over ten years and have seen her become one of the most
beautiful textile companies in our sector.

If you had to choose 3 words to describe yourself, what would they be?

Inspired, grateful and busy.

Tell us about your first textile memory?

I have been working in the design sector for over 25 years and during my career I have been able to work with many textiles. In the late 90s, I worked as a manager at a furniture store in New York. Next to the store was an interior design company with a library filled with materials, both beautiful and unusual, hand-woven by a Brooklyn weaver. That's when I understood the beauty of artisanal products. I was completely in love. The next day, I quit my job and started working for a textile company!

What subject inspires you the most? And what is your favorite association?

Tassar silk. This hand-spun fiber is very difficult to obtain. As for my favorite combination, I like to combine Vicuna leather with linen, adding a touch of gold.

What is your favorite PERRINE product?

I am constantly inspired by Perrine's textile design work, but if I had to choose one product, it would be the Aussane rug.
