7100 news: We’ve been making little bowls

(Version française en bas.) After a couple of months in business, we realize that one of the challenges we face is making people understand what it is we actually make. T’nalak and hinabol, while both beautiful fabrics, are known to very few outside those of the Philippines islands. What we do with them also adds to the comprehension difficulty factor, as sculpting fabric is a relatively new technique. We thought that one solution is developing familiar shapes; another is suggesting uses for the objects we create. These are why we recently created Gusto and Nais, two shapes of small bowls, and suggest  you use them as pot holders. Of course, they’d also be great as pencil holders and all-around catch-all. They’re in the shop.

FR: L’un des défis auxquels nous sommes confrontés est faire comprendre ce que nous faisons exactement. T’nalak et hinabol sont des beaux tissus, mais peu connus en dehors des îles Philippines. Ajoutez à cela le fait que le sculpture de tissu est une technique relativement nouvelle. Nous pensons qu’une solution est le développement des formes familières. Une autre solution est de proposer des utilisations pour les objets que nous créons. Voila donc Gusto et Nais, deux formes de petits bols, à utiliser comme cache-pots. Si cela vous tente, allez-y les utiliser comme porte-crayons et vide-poche. Ils sont dans la boutique.
