Oyuna: Soft Edge

18th September 2014

Taking their design signature from product and speculative design to textiles, some of my favourite designers Peter Marigold and Study O Portable as well as Hunting and Narud have curated their stories onto cashmere for Cashmere brand Oyuna.

Telling stories about the origins of cashmere and incorporating his signature design, Peter Marigold has used the beauty of rust markings to create patterns that represent the passing of time whilst Study O Portable were inspired by the fact that during the second world war many countries banned the production of knitted jumpers because spies were using the patterns to embed code.

Looking to code of today they have designed a knitted textile that incorporates a code displayed through colour and pattern. Titled Echoes, they designed a code using 1's and 0's for each stitch which was sent to a Mongolian programmer to translate into real fabric.

Taking a more info graphic approach to telling the story of cashmere production Amy Hunting and Oscar Narud's piece is a black and white chequered fabric that acts as a time piece representing the number of hairs a Mongolian cashmere goat produces each year, month and day.

The point of these pieces is to draw attention to something that we take for granted and use every day and the history behind cashmere.
