Rust Collection a series of handwoven home textiles, infused with rusty iron, creating a natural dye.
Using rust as a pigment, the textiles are dyed in a controlled manner, resulting in a unique pattern that toes a fine line between planned and random.
Inspired by the interaction of humankind and nature, the collection is rooted in the establishment of a new element – one that is natural, yet also artificially created.
The use of rust stems from a personal tendency to engage with readily available, everyday materials, giving them new life through design.
The rust dye demonstrates how the flaws left by time are a source of beauty and vitality, while simultaneously a testimonial to temporality.
Each work is ONE OF A KIND and ranges between the meticulous human aesthetics to the wild nature of the material.
The textiles are handwoven on a traditional manual loom, whose slow and laborious process tells a story about not only materiality, but also the figure behind its creation.
