    Nova is a soft and comfortable blanket, woven by traditional weavers in the South of France.
    The weavers keep their own sheep in the Camargue to produce the beautiful Merino wool.
    Merino is particularly known for its fine quality and its extremely soft touch.
    Nova can be used both as a summer blanket combined with a linen sheet, or as an extra layer to provide warmth during winter.
    The blanket measures 260 x 240 cm and easily covers a double bed.

  • Rugs collection

    The strength of the rugs is a beautiful interplay between fabric and design. Alfred chose a 100% natural fiber, blending New Zealand wool, which is known for its softness, and Portuguese wool, which adds strength.
    This wool mix ensures that the rugs have a nice texture and are pleasant to touch. The strong contrasts of the rugs give the series a timeless and contemporary character, a feature that is in line with the rest of the Alfred home collection.
    The craft and tradition of hand weaving enhances the special character of the rugs. Each rug is woven and finished with great care. This technique allows designing for a specific space, to meet a customer's special wish or in function of a project.

  • Homewear collection

    The kimono is slightly wrinkled, which is a characteristic of the fabric. The special finish makes the fabric very soft and gives a very comfortable feeling while wearing.
    Ironing is unnecessary after washing. This kimono is available in off-white and deep blue (the same color as the Vivien bed linen). Our homewear perfectly complements our bed linen, both in fabric as in style.

  • Curtains collection

    The curtains are made out of 40% wool and 60% linen. This mixture offers a beautiful result. Wool is a fabric that wrinkles very little, which is a great feature. We weave the fabric of our curtains in Belgium using very durable wool and Belgian linen of magnificent quality. We offer our knowledge and expertise in curtains and rugs to architects, interior designers, shopkeepers or any other interested person and we can join them on location to determine the best fit.
    All our curtains can be made to measure. Our services include manufacturing and fitting. We can also design specifically to meet the needs of a building or room. For many years, we have been working with the same sewing professionals, whose skills and feel for finish are unrivalled.
    Of course, all our fabrics can be purchased by the meter with a standard width of 150cm. For larger surfaces, we can provide the fabric at 300cm width. All fabrics can be made fireproof, on request.

    • Arte

      This Arte collection designed by Marie Mees and Cathérine Biasino goes beyond the flat wall-covering and brings the wall enchantingly to life. The technique of printing and the application of relief is used to give light the opportunity to transform the wall, or, as the renowned French architect Le Corbusier so poetically put it, 'le jeu savant des formes sous la lumière' (the clever game of forms in light). The surface of the wall is such that it changes according to the intensity of light and the angle from which it is viewed. It is the right variegation of matt and shiny printing or small and subtle changes in relief that make this extra experience possible.

      We developed for the Antwerp based design label Valerie_Objects four series of handwoven carpets in 100% wool. Fran, Frenzy, Lucy and Ivy. The four series come in three sizes and excel in durability and sobriety. This is not ‘fast design’ that expires after a year but a reverence of the archetype of a carpet, pure in form and function. All carpets are crafted with in a mixture of two top-shelf wools from New Zealand and Portugal. “The New Zealand wool offers the right softness while the Portuguese adds strength.

    • About
      By putting a range of household linen on the market under the Alfred label, Marie Mees and Cathérine Biasino are deliberately expressing a timeless ambition and a passion for textiles. It's a question of control, from the originality of the design to the extremely high quality of the end product. Every link in the chain is of crucial importance and is followed up with the same energy and care, resulting in a refined and durable product.
      After years of working with leading brands in the textile and carpet sector, the decision to put together and market their own collection was almost self-evident. By creating high-quality products, they wish to respond to a gap in the market, with creations in which as much care is put into the design as the technical execution. Creation and execution are inextricably linked, and it is precisely by putting every stage of the process on an equal footing that it is possible to end up with a unique product.
      Examining the collection closely, one finds oneself in the intense world of detail. But detail is all too often seen as an add-on, whereas in fact it is precisely in the detail that we find the essence of what did not strike us at first glance. In a world of superficial images, many people find it hard to grasp the care and attention paid to refinement. It is not so natural to attend so meticulously to the less conspicuous qualities of a product.
      It is precisely in this introduction of subtle elements which are not initially obvious that we find the key to understanding and appreciating the textile designs by Marie Mees and Cathérine Biasino.
      The essence of the collection is quality and durability. The thinking consumer will be increasingly aware that a limited number of items, whether it be textiles or other products, is preferable to a reduction in quality. Knowing that behind a product there are people with specialist skills who have worked on it with heart and soul gives this household linen an added human value.
      This is a collection that seeks the beauty of the essential, an almost invisible perfection combining order, proportion and pattern. These two ladies have, with the greatest refinement, created the Alfred collection as an experience that far transcends the visual. Their aim is to appeal to both the sensitive consumer and the project market.
