C/C N. 004
Performance fabric swatches turned into a statement necklace. This type of nylon is normally used to make trench coats and other outerwear garments. Synthetic fibres were woven on a jacquard loom giving the finished product a double-faced, silky and shiny finish. These bold colours will liven up even the simplest white t-shirt, or pair it with a blouse, transforming it into a modern day play on a men's necktie.
Delicately sewn together, this color palette is the unchanged offering from the Italian textile mill. Sturdy leather cording is hand wrapped with embroidery floss. The ball glass closure came from a spare chandelier part I found at a local antique market in Tuscany.
Please note the possibility of imperfections on these miniature swatches as they are used as is. Once peeled away from the cardboard there may be remains of paper. This only enhances the pure beauty of the material that is left in its raw and unchanged state. Loose threads may also occur, but for me this is a desired design detail.
