TEXTILE DESIGN - About Shibori

Shibori is a Japanese technique of creating designs in dyed fabric. It is a dye-resist technique, using items that bind the fabric to create areas where the dye will not penetrate. Depending on the materials used and how the fabric is bound, the dyed designs vary from random splashes of color to highly symmetrical patterns. There are several different styles of this technique that are identified by the particular resist method used.

The arashi shibori technique creates a diagonal pattern of color. The cloth is folded or twisted before being wrapped around a pole. After being wrapped around the pole, the cloth is compressed from end to end, scrunching the fabric along the pole. String is wound around the fabric to hold it in place while it is dyed. The resulting pattern often resembles lightning or rain.

Kanoko shibori involves gathering the cloth in sections and tying the sections with string or rubber bands. This dying technique is also known as tie-dye. The pattern is varied by gathering different amounts of cloth into sections and by changing the tension used to secure the sections. The dye absorbs into the fabric in a starburst style.

Yet another technique, in kumo shibori a person wraps sections of cloth around objects before the cloth is dyed. The cloth is wrapped around hard items, such as rocks or stones, and secured with string. This dye technique makes a spiderlike design in the cloth.

Ispiring beauty. Look at her face or better to her glowing eyes. They surely have something to say..

PRODUCT DESIGN - Knit Desing by Monomoka

Arw twin sisters, who practically from the time of their birth were of one mind in the development of  creativity and in perception of the world. Grown up in Poland during the bleak era of a decadent socialism, which made them determined to find different aesthetic values from the ones that surrounded. Limited access to a "colourful" western world, and the desire to develop their own style, forced them into creative thinking. 

The name MONOMOKA is a symbol of  inseparable sisterly connection which has, so far, resulted in a collection of 13 unique objects. The painstaking hand crocheting which we personally carry out means that each unique piece has taken many months to create.  


GRAPHICS - New cover for Jane Austen books

Jane Austen’s novels maintain a universally enduring appeal right up to this day and are loved both in print and as film and TV adaptations.
The aim for this updated set was to create a desirable look that would convey a modern and brave take on Austen’s traditional tales of love, family and status within society.
The illustrator of the series Leanne Shapton had this to say about her style:

"The nice thing about patterns is that they can evoke a certain mood or tone, but also be neutral. I loved creating a consistent handwritten label style for the six books and then thinking of which patterns might obliquely suit the titles. I think the patterns we chose quietly compliment and correspond to the stories. My favorite is Mansfield Park."
The full set comprising of Emma, Mansfield Park, Northanger Abbey, Persuasion, Pride and Prejudice and Sense and Sensibility are published this week


ART- Joana Vasconcelos

Celebrated Portuguese artist Joana Vasconcelos showcases the beauty of handicraft techniques from her home country in the Bestiary series.

Known for her show-stopping interventions and gravity defying pieces, Vasconcelos focuses on smaller scale as well. Manipulating animals made in earthenware pottery from 19th Century artisan Rafael Bordalo Pinheiro; each over-sized creature is carefully covered, or better yet, protected with extraordinary crochet lace from the Azores region.

Joana was the first woman and youngest contemporary artist to ever exhibit in Versailles Palace, such a relevant and strong statement of her skill and sophistication is easily recognizable in her body of work.



Narciso is a project which started with the intention of designing some vases, focusing on the functionality of the vase as an object. But what is the function of a vase? They are used to display flowers.Narciso is a collection of six different vases which use mirrors to draw attention to the role of the flowers. Mirrors are investigated in all their aspects, from the simplest reflection to the most complex one. In this way each vase shows flowers from a different point of view. They’re made in borosilicate glass, powder-coated alluminium and mirrored stainless steal.

INSPIRATION - Unexpectable results when a mother let complete her work drawings to her daughter of 4years old

Mica Angela Hendricks is an American artist. Initially she did not want her daughter close to her sketchbook, because Mica knew that her girl would have scribbled it. But one day she decided to leave Mila finish a drawing.

The result was really impressive, a combination between the mother's realistic portraits  and the rude and infant sign of her daughter, was able to recreate bizarre and imaginative characters from the  truly unique charisma. 

After Mila contribution, the mother finishes the design with the colors.

This would make us understand that many times, be able to let go and overcome our mental limits leads us to unexpected and totally fantastic results.
