I am really dived into the project!
Clutch bags in which I carry with me my memories
to the disapointment and especially the joy of finding a healthy cattail,
for pools with clear ice water,
to large ponds with tall reeds,
on the weight of the wet soaked cattail and its lightness after its drying at the tiled stove in the cottage,
for careful processing of individual leaves,
for the following of traditional weaving of mats,
for making so much mess everywhere around.
This project was presented at Dutch Design Week 2022, BioArt Laboratories, Eindhoven, Netherlands by Studio of textile design 'Symbiosis: Willows and Cattails' ​​​​​​​
