wonderful new posts! i really like those soft ribbed textures in Noguchi's lamps

Agusco, I saw in your profile that you worked with Nakao in his collection --that's wonderful! And welcome to theFashionSpot
I really like this bottom left one. The floral pattern on the skirt looks like embroidery
I looked at the website and it looks like your team was also weaving with paper(?)

Hello Gius! thanks for your welcome!
Those papers that look like embroidery are engraved papers and also laser cut papers that were developed for the collection (inspired on art nouveau artworks). Yes we weaved with paper in some bustiers and also sewed some jackets and bustiers. You posted many nice things made of paper, that paper yarn is amazing! I would like to show you another work made of paper that i did with nakao, take a look at this video: http://www.vimeo.com/239467
(i haven't learned yet how to embed or upload videos)

That's so interesting! It's like a dinosaur
Are the feathers in the video "textura corpo" the same feathers used for that project? I like the paper you're using. It seems a bit crispy and also translucent. I almost thought it was a kind of plastic (maybe acetate).

I've been quite interested in using paper as a textile for some time now. It has a variety of great textures. If you are interested in paper yarn, it is actually simple to make:p
I made some paper yarn myself and wove it into fabric. Here is a picture: http://bp0.blogger.com/_m7byKzAT2wM/.../papertext.jpg
I used paper bags from coffeeshops. The fabrics are a mix of linen and paper. In the bottom fabric, I added silver ribbon.
At the top, you can see the paper yarn --the yarn in a circle is made using a spinning wheel, and the yarn under it is twisted by my own hands

Gius, those paper yarns are really nice, i loved them! Maybe because of the color they reminded me of Yuta (Corchorus capsularis), a natural yarn that's extracted from Yuta tree (i don't know if in english it is called like this). How did you formed the yarn? Did you use any liquid or something to join the "fibers" into the yarn?
Yes, it really looks like a dinosaur! it also reminds me of gibli's "hawl's moving castle" because of it's funny movements. The paper we used in this project is 180gr tracing paper, because of its thickness it's really similar to acetate. We made giant origamis with each paper. In this picture you can see it's structure. The feathers in that video are some studies i did before chosing the final technique.
Shinkoyo Sister, those laser cuts are really nice.

Thanks everyone

Oh you're right, agusco-- It's very similar to jute (in appearance and feel)
This paper fabric drapes nicely, I think. It also looks heavy but it's actually very light.

I only cut the paper bags into strips and then moistened and twisted each strip into yarn :p I used instructions from this book:

www.wcl.govt.nz /

I think that nice paper you used really brings out the beauty of that bird

Very nice work, fnk* I read your interview... I agree, there is something special about paper and it's the perfect material. For me it's that I can make it anything I want with it. it's very versatile ..and I like the crispness of it.
I like the shiny paper you're using! Beautiful

agusco :p I'm not a professional yet.. I'm just very interested in creating interesting textures for fabric. I also study surface design (like silk screen), but weaving and other methods of structure building are my most favourite ~
And oh, must not forget dyeing
