Exploring new possibilities. This is one of the principles that guides Parovel’s search, which together with attention to the manufacturing expressions of our territory each time creates new intertwinements and lets new projects arise as in the case of Maral for ParovelDom. Maral is an artistic collaboration between design and painting that Parovel will promote through an unprecedented project. Mara Pavatich together with painter Lara J. Marconi is responsible for Maral design and in this interview she tells it so.
What was your path as a designer?
I started with manufacturing, I have always had a passion for sewing and when I was 21 I decided to specialize in tailoring and fashion design going to study in Verona and Milan. In 2006 I began to create hand-knits influenced by my family tradition. I developed a personal technique, all tubular with few seams making a first collection of hats, coats and shawls, very much inspired by the traditional Slovene costume. Since then I have created a collection a year and I slowly introduced the fabric. With the idea of making a ready-to-wear collection accessible to all, I started from cotton and silk. I take the fabric, sew it and dye it and then hang it allowing the color to strain and create original hues and shapes of color.
In 2010 I made the first sale of a collection at a trade fair in Paris dedicated to international buyers. It was very successful, and from then I devoted myself to present collections that could even be events. The last presentation was made in a garage. A very atypical atmosphere, but the event went very well.
Three words to describe yourself..
Sensitive, shy, dreamy.
What brings you closer to Parovel world?
From the beginning I have had a very positive impression, because the company is a family business, where everyone has a role and everyone helps. It’s something that I really like. We do different things, I with the fabrics and Parovel with wine and oil, but we are similar in research and attention to detail. Both our activities trigger the senses.
In realizing this line of fabrics and objects for ParovelDom what did inspire you?
The simplicity of the company that makes products easily understandable by the customer, the fact of being so close to nature and the attempt to promote the olive oil in other contexts. I get further inspiration from the exclusivity of Parovel products. Thinking about the green color of nature, I got the idea to get the color from olive leaves, as much as I'd like to do next with the wine, a color that distinguishes the product.
With my friend, colleague and partner Lara J. Marconi we have elaborated the nature that surrounds us and for the prints that we will shortly achieve we thought about the flowers of the Carso or small wildlife that lives there, like chickadees. On table linens that you will find at Olio Capitale you’ll see animals, plants and flowers that surround us and tell about us.
What type of work did you plan?
In addition to the usual technique which provides for the choice of fabrics, sewing, dyeing and finally printing, on some tissue appliques will also be sewn, in order to make the object even more original.
Creations of Maral are visible on the websites www.marapavatich.com and laramarconi.com while to see and touch the fabrics and objects created exclusively for ParovelDom the appointment is at Olio Capitale March 7 to 10. The creators will be with us every day in Hall Nordio N20.
