Matilda Norberg: Earth's Crust – Material rules

Image   •   Jan 23, 2018 12:36 GMT

Earth’s Crust – Material Rules is a collection that studies knitting as a technique, while pushing its limits and challenging it. The starting point was the earth’s crust: its form, changeability, processes, materials and relationships there between. Shown here are parts of the collection. A hand-knitted jacket in wool, where the round shape of the garment is determined in the technique – the size of the stitch grows with each length. A machine-knitted dress in polyamide and polypropylene that has been melted for stability and volume. A coat in machine-knitted cashmere/viscose/ polyester/nylon, laminated with rubber and held together by heat. In my business of knitting design, the development of new materials and techniques is key. I work partly from my knitting lab in Malmö, and partly as an external designer for fashion houses in Sweden and internationally.
