Process & Production
Cutting, sewing and folding
During the residency, I have worked to develop new methods to recycle leather scraps. I brought my pleating moles I normally use for textile. But the leather was too thick to use in my moulds.
I took inspiration from the form of pleating and made a simple form, and tested how to sew it together to create the 3D shapes. After different experiments, the zig-zag seam gave the best result. The prototype is a 60 cm long accordion sewn together with a size 40 contrast polyester thread to make sure the seam will hold. The technique has the potential to be used for wall pieces, acoustic improvements, and bags.
