SATURATION by Rory Longdon

The theme stems from the book ‘Maske’ by Phyllis Galembo, which focuses on different African tribes and their unexpected use of material to form their attire. The story focuses heavily on craft. Fabrications are created to look hand made, crafted and worn – knitted stitches are then reworked with hand techniques that render fabrications more luxury. Yarns are all natural with dry qualities as if bleached by the sun. Swatches and garments are created with raw silks, raffia, cotton tapes and linens. Yarns from Xinnuo, Takizen and Armonia form the core yarns for this story.
