One of the major themes of my sustainable textiles range is to either put small pieces together like parts of Nespresso pods to make up a fabric or to extract bigger parts like old clothes to create a fabric. The raw creativity and random nature of composing fabrics this way is what appeals to me. This spirit can be found in wires as well…
Random and chaotic wires in Delhi, India are so appealing because they have subtle patterns and sense of repetition that cannot be easily understood or replicated- Something I am striving for in my collection.
Different perspective of wires creates unique ideas for constructing fabric by weaving or looping elements around themselves.
Barbed wire ball from Eco Outdoor- a great way to up-cycle barbed wire wire in an interesting way!
Weaving and coiling is effective, particularly as it is wrapped around a cylindrical shape. Could be transformed into a much smaller bead- style application to be threaded onto strings and then woven.
The random wire concept translates beautifully in bright colours! Yay Colours are a central theme of my collection! So the wire and colours have got me inspired to create my own colourful wire textile fabrications.
