Textiles: Elisa Strozyk







I'm having a textile love affair at the moment and thought I'd indulge in a week of fabric love. First off the block, German based designer, Elisa Strozyk and her wooden textiles. Surely the ultimate in innovation and imagination, this fabric utilises wood veneer off-cuts and re-purposes them via laser cut technology to create a more fluid fabric of strength and flexibility. I love the interplay between our perception of what is hard and soft. You can visit her website to find out more here.
