Hechizoo Textiles

1968 - 
Nationality: Colombian

Founded in 2000, Hechizoo is a weaving atelier based in Bogotá, Colombia, which produces custom made textiles for rugs, upholstery, window treatments and architectural meshes. The founder and creative energy behind the textiles is Jorge Lizarazo. A self taught weaver, Lizarazo originally studied architecture at Los Andes University. Upon graduation, he moved to France practicing architecture in the offices of Santiago Calatrava and Massimiliano Fuksas. Through these experiences, he was exposed to contemporary architectural trends and innovative construction methods that informed his later work. The inventive use of materials quickly defined the textiles with the ingenious integration of indigenous organic fibers with man made materials such as metal and nylon monofilament.

With an architectural sense of proportion and structure, these materials give the textiles new properties, allowing the material to filter and reflect light. Jorge Lizarazo identifies these new textiles as soft architecture and their innate characteristics redefine the use of the product. Textiles are transformational; they have the power to change a space visually and tactility and the effects these textiles have on their environmental conditions impact the senses.
