108 Patterns and Stories
The "108" is a magical number in Oriental Culture.
The famous Temple Heaven has 108 fences. There are 108 lucky stars and evil stars in Taoism astrology. A Dream of Red Mansions had 108 chapters.
If you are asked to record 108 the most important small things in your life, what will your collections look like?
The 108 Patterns Project is our way of interpreting this subject. We are currently working on 108 original textile patterns, all hand-made (block-printing, screen printing, embroidery etc.). Each design is an art journal of our everyday life and has a story to be read.
This on-going project start in 2016. All patterns fall under 5 themes: TEA TIME, NICE FOOD, SWEET BUDDHA, FOLK TALES, LITTLE FOREST.
