Camal Pirbhai -textile artist
Camal Pirbhai is a textile artist. Apprenticed in London, England at the source of his craft, Camal has been applying his trade in Toronto for over 20 years. His meticulous attention to detail and his fervent desire to create the extraordinary is what truly makes this couture artisan a rare and unique talent.
Creative lead designer and principal of Studio la Beauté, couture curtain maker since 1994 Camal’s works are commissioned by some of Canada’s most prestigious architects and interior designers. Often designing exclusive collections for designers, his bold concepts are created with exceptional attention to detail are of the highest level of craftsmanship.
As such a visionary, it was evident that Camal’s ideas would expand to evolve beyond textiles. Coming from a very structured concept of Studio la Beauté to the rare and unconventional ways of design Camal began to exhibit conceptual works and collaborations with other artisan’s through his haute couture label, Gallery Bespoke.
Highly respected for his craftsmanship, vision and artistic flare, Camal has collaborated with some very talented and accomplished artists both in the Canadian art industry and on an international level. Most recently his Gallery Bespoke label has landed such collections in the Gardiner Museum, Textile Museum of Toronto and The McMichael Canadian Art Collection.
