Inspired by an excess of material, the ROPE PANTS began as an exploration of weaving and continued into a full garment. The garment grew from the floor up.
This garment was created to explore techniques to create sustainable textiles, but in itself is not made of reclaimed materials - simply cotton clothesline rope. However, this technique can be used as the base to take this concept further.
This garment explores textile construction and is ARTISANAL in nature - it is heavy, and primarily artwork. Included with the sweater is a STORYBOOK, made with muslin scraps. The book tells the story of the garment, from its inception to its completion, including exclusive photos and technical diagrams.
