Our first venture into pattern design for fabrics. For this private commission, we use our signature non-repeating pattern technique. Two initials seamlessly and organically transform in and out of each other.
Our first venture in pattern creation for apparel gave us a great insight into the technical limits of fabric printing. Our work is usually for extremely high definition print. Intaglio printing, for example, is printed at upwards of 8000 dpi. Most fabric printing is typically in the 250 dpi area, so we tailored our design accordingly.
The design was initially for a square scarf. The two initials of the wearer geometrically blend in and out of each other. Typically with our work, a piece can be read from two perspectives: from afar and close up. From a distance, the pattern appears to be shimmering color. On closer inspection, a geometric logic emerges.
