Fruit of
the loom

This research is inspired from the work of ragmen, I collect loom straps from textile industries. Out of cotton, polyester or cashmere; colorful or plain; large, thin or fringed makes this post-industrial waste, various in color and matter. I use the volume of the fringes as its own padding and its diversity, to rhythm and create structure in the surfaces. Ironically, the industry waste turns itself into a rich and dense volume that remembers tapestry work traditionally crafted.

This has been the primary research that lead me to continue to work on repurposing waste selvedges during the next project called Cutting-Edge.
