Although, textile design does not enjoy the same popularity as fashion design, I think we should take it into account with the same interest and consideration. Especially since, nowadays, this segment reveals many pleasant surprises.
So, I want to present the work of a young Israelian textile designer – Iris Arad.
Iris Arad, graduated from Shenkar College of Engineering and Design, in 2012. Talking about her work, Iris shares her passion for knitting and her experience on mechanical flatbed knitting machine:
I was fascinated by the techniques and the process, and emphasized on creating three-dimensional shapes by using knitted surfaces.Today what occupies me is how to apply these surfaces to a three-dimensional shape – the human body. Another point of notice is my approach to the usage of colors. I try to create a combination that is not banal, and yet harmonizes, as to avoid dissonance.
To take a glimpse of Iris’ particular work, I’ve made a mixed selection: some of my favorite knitted details, designer’s sketches, accessories.
