This top and skirt are showing two things; the simplicity of my seamless technique and the qualities of British wool.
On one hand the piece is well-fitted, hugging the figure, on the other it beautifully falls out of balance. The textile is light and rough, warm and sheer. Still carrying the scent of wool.
With my self-developed hand loom I am aiming to create items that require less waste in production and are unique to the wearer’s shape and preferences, hopefully leading to a stronger bond between the individual and the object, making them less obsolete.
