Home(liness)

2017

Home(liness) investigates “feeling at home”somewhere. Inspired by nomadic life, I havedeveloped a series of knitwear which representsthe warmth of a home. Nomads travel fromone place to another and continuously rebuildtheir home with different fabrics, tapestries,cushions. I have created a contemporary takeon this tradition. After thorough investigation,I have developed my own technique by relyingboth on the extensibility of knitting as wellas on the strength of the weaving technique.This way, I have established strong knitwearwhich might seem like it is woven at first sight,but it is actually knitted. By adopting the sametechnique while essentially using yarns, I havemade samples for tapestries, seating furnitureand blankets. This includes everything to feelat home, as well as to decorate your home afteryour own needs.
