For this collection of scarfs, the designer was inspired by the industrial process of textile production. She has created a series garments made of and woven from raw, unspun wool, with the help of potato starch as a temporary stiffener. Potato starch has long been used in the textile industry to stiffen spun wool, making it stronger to weave with. But spinning wool reduces its natural softness. The designer has developed a method to maximising the potential of starch resulting in a beautiful textile collection.
