MOVE / REPEAT

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.

THE MAKING

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.

THE PRESENTATION

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.
