folding a part, mika barr
item: folding a part
material: hand dyed fabric silk screened with geometric patterns
designer: mika barr, israel

comments: mika created these fabrics because of her interest in geometric patterns in nature. she dyed and silk screen printed the fabrics with these patterns to inform the way the fabric drapes and folds. areas that are silk screened are inflexible which allows the non printed areas to fold, thus creating shape. the three dimensional quality of these fabrics is stunning. the origami geek in me is quite intrigued.
