Au Chou Frisé

Combining simple patterns meant to recall an imaginary French bistro, Au Chou Frisé  – “At The Ruffled Kale” – was my first collection designed specifically for vegan tearooms, cafés, restaurants or shops. This project turned me into a detective trying to figure out the name, looks, and uses of kale in different countries. And it seems I was not alone:
Kale was a forgotten vegetable, so it is quite fascinating to witness the process of its reemergence. This is also why I drew the leaf shape a bit differently – it was like people trying to draw lions from imagination. The set now resides in Germany.
