Knitted Tale

For me, knitting is a technique that allows the possibility of endless continuity. The collection explores knitting through the female relationships and hierarchies in my family lineage: my grandmother, mother and I all produce handiworks, each in her own way. The process focused on traditional knitting techniques versus advanced techniques I devised in the various pieces, ranging from freestyle knitting to a structured laser-cut grid woven with wool fibers. The patterns are voluminous, round and envelop the body with warm natural colors.

Materials: merino wool fibers, neoprene, silk, chiffon, wool.

Techniques: sewing, knitting, threading, cutting and pasting, laser cutting.
