Red is the colour of life and death. One of the first paint in the history of mankind. Before 40 000 year people found and used iron oxide for painting (body, clothes, pottery). Telkibánya –’Veresvizi’ patak – the oxidation of Iron sulphite meeting the water creates iron oxide, which covers, colours the environment- stones, leaves. These objects makes rust imprints to the sorroundings.
The Ditta Felt Aqua bag is a very unique, elegant and stylish bag handcrafted by the designers, made from transparent pvc, high quality felt and wood.
The natural and plastic, transparent and opaque, tough and soft, hard and flexible, are harmoniously united in this product.
The collection found their inspiration in the objects of built environment which ruined by the force of nature. It’s about the marks of fragility which I adapt to textiles. I wanted to create a poethical but modern collection through hand crafted fabrics. It’s focusing what I want the brand to be, environmentally conscious collections. Hand felted textiles, mark making with rust doesn’t need synthetic dyestuff.
The collection inspired of the art deco buildings of Berlin and Budapest, the ancient armours, eastern traditional outfits and the movie Metropolis (1927).
Red and blue felts
The collection inspired of the Middle-European traditional wooden art. Focused on the 3 dimensional, carved pattern in various colours and depth, which creats a special graphical look. The forms are simple, comfortable, loose-fitting with wide surfaces.
The choosen inspiration source was the engraving and cutting technique, in my work I wanted to translate these technique into the textile. The pattern also inspired on linear and circular elements arranged in a partycular system . In the works the felting makes the pattern and form, I compose it with cutting the felted material. One of my aim was to emphasize the depth and sculpturesque of the material and the pattern.
