Crafting with Cotton: A Textile Designer's Vision

All the products share a common material, which is cotton rope crafted through zigzag stitches with a sewing machine.

First, inspiration is sought in the forms of nature, architecture, traditional basketry, and specifically in ceramics.

For some products, an already created piece is used as inspiration, and an attempt is made to recreate it or make a version using the common material, cotton rope. In other pieces, a sketch is made, and the prototype is created directly on the material, shaping it with hands while fixing its form through zigzag stitches.

Depending on the difficulty of each piece, it can take anywhere from a couple of hours to days, especially if it involves a specific and detailed embroidery.

The techniques used include machine sewing, macramé, basketry, and hand embroidery.

What makes them special is the delicacy of the material and its lightness, especially to the touch, as they resemble ceramic pieces.

You might wonder...

Yes, as long as it is done with cold water, since the material is cotton and could shrink.

No problem, as long as the original prototype is not modified and assuming the additional cost.
