Elecric Co fabrics
The fabrics are knitted with plastic monofilaments, up-cycled from the textile industry. The looped plastic monofilament rhythmically creates rigidity, which allows the support and direction to softer yarns made of virgin wool and opulent fake fur. The knitted monofilament becomes a constructive 3D element in ELECTRIC CO designs that graphically accentuates the outlines of the upper body’s muscular character. By adhering to the anatomy and turning it inside out to create an exoskeleton, the shapes have both a futuristic and archaic appearance.
