the domestic sphere

my dalliances with all things domestic


knitting in fashion

Leo handed me a clipping from Wired about Sandra Backlund, a designer who has created some breathtaking garments from folded paper. She works mainly though, with knitting.

"The handicraft process and the handmade feeling is also very significant." she writes, "I am interested in almost every traditional handicraft method. I do experiment a lot with different materials and techniques, but it is through my heavy wool collage knitting that I have found the ultimate way to express myself. It is a freedom to be able to make your own fabric while working."
