New(s) Fashion

This project explores how newspaper can become an excellent raw material to make different products embracing the philosophy of finding value in waste. Using the technique of knitting, I analysed the different properties of paper and realized how similar it was to yarn in terms of behavior and how different in terms of texture and feel.

The first samples were made by cutting stripes of paper and knitting simple square forms. The second iteration involved using a mix of materials to provide more structure to the surface. Further explorations led to experimenting with different knitting techniques to create a unique spiral form. 


The piece was featured in the Annual Textile show at Hof, Germany.
