Consciousness-Driven Innovations

Posted on

Usually I’m not very interested in the worldwide trends, or something that is happening extensively, because most of the time it’s too closely related to massive production, has a strong odour of simple consumerism, is very predictable and far away from the true innovation. But today I’m totally immersed into a trend that not only […]

Juana Gomez - Embroidered Illustration

It is fascinating how the smallest details, patterns and textures intertwine and repeat in the world around us. Each structure resembles another one. We, ourselves, are a smaller repetition of a bigger picture, just like structures of trees or rivers. Who we are and what we create becomes an integral part of nature, a complex net of patterns. […]

Cara Marie Piazza

You might think that is a weird thing to say, but I just love natural dyes! Maybe it is not so odd if you consider that I am a textile designer, so my mind is always filled with ideas about colours, patterns, textures, materials and, of course, dyes. I am happy to find designers experimenting with alternative ways […]

Textiles Made by Rain

Made by Rain

I don’t know about your new year, but mine is starting with some rain. I know that for many of us rainy days are quite slow and sleepy, whenever it is possible we try to avoid getting wet and cold. For that reason I was looking for an inspiration that would embrace the rainy weather. […]

Sound and textiles to me looks like a perfect combination. While doing research on this subject I found something really interesting- woven fabric featuring sound patterns. The geometric patterns created by the beats and sounds in music are set to the loom to be materialised. This wonderful project is created by the textiles label BeatWoven, based in London. Here are a few […]

Exploring the lives of creative people is truly exciting! It is even more interesting to meet these people in person, learn each of their […]

Sustainable Minimalist Products by Golden Biscotti

Golden Biscotti

I can never decide what I like more: intricately patterned or plain simple objects.  Items with lots of interesting details and vibrant colours attract attention and brighten up the day and I really like them. However, there is something magical about monochromatic colours and minimalist design… something that keeps me wanting more and more of these types of objects, photographs […]
