Hem

Hem is an exploration of materials based on the thought of connecting materials in the making process. The starting point of Hem was the importance of considering the connection of materials to each other as a process in production; hence the designer created a series of seamless bags. Latex is used as a glue medium to stick the fabrics to each other.

Printing with latex in a way that is similar to silkscreen printing not only gives the bag an interesting graphic, but also functions as a hem, connecting fabrics or creating small tunnels for rope to be threaded through.

"Hem"はリネンとラテックスで出来たシームレスバックです。ラッテクスを使った技法は布と布を接着するための素材研究の過程で生まれました。シルクスクリーンのようにラテックスでグラフィックをプリントし、それと同時にプリント部分の布同士を接着します。プリントしたグラフィックは紐を通す穴になったり、ほつれ止めとして機能します。
