Foliage achieves a photorealistic approach through the use of rubber printing blocks that Jongerius based off found leaves. With its loose, staggered composition, Foliage resembles a collection of flower and plant pressings. Together with Eden, Foliage offers an inventive take on the decorative genre
of flora and fauna. Both textiles feature highly picked constructions to achieve optimal color saturation and fine detail. The design marks an intense collaboration with the American textile manufacturer, Maharam.
