These fungus-like purses are made of layers of laser-cut silk.
Created by Israeli textile designer Sivan Royz, the pieces are slotted together with string.
The tighter the curves, the darker the edges of the silk.
Holes in the fabric line up to create cavities inside, suitable for holding items like a lipstick and mobile phone.
Here are some more details from Sivan Royz:
This project takes inspirations from the world of blooming nature, what interests me most are the naturally constructed shapes that grow and develop in nature, and the smart simple ways that the are structured. I decided to bring these dimensional constructions into my textiles.
This bringing a creation of a new technique to work with fabrics.
Technique: Laser cut silk pieces, when brought together by string, create a textile structure.
The pieces are coloured evenly or not coloured at all. The shading and dark parts are created by the laser cut line, as a straight line will create less dark areas then a crooked line.
The dimensional pieces react to movement when handled and change accordingly like a living organism.
The white objects shown are small purses. One is custom made for holding only an i phone and a channel lipstick.
As a textile designer my main focus is in printed textiles, I have been taking interest mostly in how to make dimensional prints alongside the traditional graphic prints.
