A collection of draped, wrapped, and twisted silhouettes:
blankets and wraps for cocooning.
ABOUT THE COLLECTION
The MOVE/REPEAT collection features five custom textiles, made of a felted merino wool & cotton, woven, designed, cut and sewn in Chicago following a slow fashion model of ethical production.
We spent over a year developing exclusive fabrics for our collection. Our Chicago neighbors, The Weaving Mill, designed and wove the textiles in collaboration with Mexico City-based artist Nuria Montiel.
We first presented the work at Hyde Park Art Center with a dance performance choreographed by Anna Martine Whitehead, set pieces by Nuria Montiel, and an original score composed and performed live by Damon Locks. Dancers were Anna Martine Whitehead, Keyierra Collins, Itunuoluwa Ebijimi/Petty Crocker, Nuria Montiel, Megha Ralapati, Emma Collins, Linda Pulik, & Jamie Hayes.
