The first set of gloves was actually made as part of the first series of masks back in 2010. At the time I was still struggling with the technique and a glove was very hard to make, especially the fingers. These were so difficult that after being ready with the first, I decided to complete the pair with a mitten, which is a lot easier to make. Now 6 years later and fully aware of what I can and can’t do with rope I decided to revisit the gloves.
Some designers have a hunger for new materials. I like materials that have already proven themselves. I want to rediscover them and prove that even after being touched by so many people they are still full of surprises.
