How can we recover the textile tradition which has been lost since the Industrial Revolution?
Usage of wool has long been a social and economic engine in the Spanish textile sector. However, its origins are gradually fading. Through innovation between industry and craftsmanship, “The New Wool” reconsiders the cultural values that wool represents, delving further deeper into its possibilities to form a new and different perspective. The result is an artistic exploration of the properties of wool and latex. Malleability in contrast with the behaviour of the textile highlights the beauty between interior and exterior waterproof textures. The confection needs no sewing as it is completely handmade and it has the ability to imitate any shape, offering infinite possibilities. Finally, the origins of the materials are completely natural, resulting in a completely sustainable and biodegradable piece.
“The New Wool” is an artistic piece that explores the closeness between rich, simple materials and the importance of purity and craft”
