Timènt is Billiani's first fabric collection. Created in collaboration with the historic Bergamo wool mill Torri Lana, it is inspired by the River Tagliamento, the only European river that has not been changed by humankind and still flowing in its original bed. Through these fabrics, Cristina Celestino wanted to reproduce, by means of textures and colours, the particular bed of intertwined channels of this wholly unique watercourse and the beauty of its floodplains. Oxbows and tributaries have become, through a process of abstraction, textures to be reproduced with graphics in woollen loops for the Greto collection; in organic cotton and hemp for the Golena collection.
