Origamic Textiles

The art of origami is taken up a notch in the form of textural textiles by Milan-based designer, Elena Salmistraro. Elena produced these series of lovely accessories using paper, Tyvek and a sustainable fabric called Jacroki.
– PRICKLY BLOOM SERIES –

While teaming up with deepdesign‘s Raffaella Mangiarotti and Matthew Bazzicalupo, Elena created textural and prickly textiles for series of headwear and a neckpiece. Each accessory was produced by repeated elementary folds using both paper and Tyvek – a paper-like water-resistant fabric.

Together with deepdesign, Elena utilized Tyvek to create this ornamental headwear functions as a hat, necklace and earrings.

– JACROKI BODICE –

Elena pursued her foldings further in the form of a bodice made of Jacroki: a type of sustainable fabric made from natural fibers and recycled paper fibers manufactured byOkinawa and designed by Michael Ruffin.
