STRING THEORY is a partnership between two Canadian textile designers, Lysanne Latulippe and Meghan Price. Our scarves and shawls are made from fabrics that we design and produce in low runs with the help of small North American mills.
STRING THEORY scarves and shawls are distinguished by our exclusive pattern designs and by the look and feel of long-wearing quality. Knit and woven with yarns such as Peruvian baby alpaca and Italian merino, these fabrics are a pleasure to live in.
As constructed textile designers, we work with the math and physics of fibres, yarns, knitting and weaving to develop structure, pattern and texture. Consequently, we are inspired by natural and man-made patterns and structures. We are especially drawn to patterns that describe how the world is made and how it falls apart.
The name STRING THEORY is borrowed from a theory of physics that says the world is made of vibrating strings.
STRING THEORY textiles reflect the expertise of two designers – one specializing in knitting and the other in weaving.
LYSANNE LATULIPPE lives and works in Montreal. She has taught at The Montreal Centre for Contemporary Textiles since 2005 where in 2000, she earned a diploma in Textile Construction. Her expertise in the field of knit design is also employed in consulting for and collaborating with businesses and independent fashion designers.
MEGHAN PRICE was born and raised in Montreal and now lives in Toronto. In addition to working as a weave designer, Meghan maintains an active art practice and teaches at the Ontario College of Art & Design University. She holds a degree in Textile Construction from the Montreal Centre for Contemporary Textiles and a Master of Fine Arts with a specialization in Fibre from Concordia University.
