About Lyria

Made in Italy textile’s tradition is combined with constant research and innovation

Lyria was born in 2002 from the merging of the great Italian textile tradition and Riccardo Bruni’s creativity.
Riccardo grew up around the smell of fabric and the noise of machines.
The meeting with an old, charismatic weaver when he was 13 years old, was the crucial event of his life, which guided him during all his professional career.

Passion and Research

Bruni’s aesthetic was from the very start rooted in the Italian weaving tradition and characterized by his desire of proposing timeless fabric, no matter of seasonal trends.

Totally careless of the frenzy of the great industrial companies, Lyria production has succeeded in providing its originality.

Transversality

Collection after collection Lyria‘s fabric revived patterns belonging to the tradition by employing up-to date technical solutions and by offering a peculiar interpretation of modernity.

Lyria proposals prove that its creative authonomy can be appreciated by the most innovative stylists in the international fashion world.

Talent behind reputation

Our fabrics are made to be timeless

Riccardo Bruni, textile designer at Lyria (Fabrics), was featured in the latest Première Vision Paris promotional campaign.
“I was already working on the looms when I was 7. I grew up around the smell of fabric and the noise of the machines. I met an old weaver, a charismatic guy who guided me. At 13, I started at a textile engineering school. And one day, years later, I produced 1,800,000 metres of fabric for my first summer collection in 2001.
This job is about passion – the kind that gives you goose bumps, that makes you create textiles that dreams are made of, that can plunge you into the abyss when a project isn’t working… The work of the textile designer is about dreams. I work like a painter, imagining the final picture, then figuring out how to carry it out. It’s the kind of work that has to be done with love, freedom and passion to create marvellous things. Unfortunately those aren’t the emotions most present in the company, nor in society in general. You have to forge your own emotional environment. That’s probably why on a daily basis, I like working with women. They have a different sensibility, which brings me a lot.
