Ethno Mimicry was created in the form of a semester assignment. This is an ethnic pattern taken from fur — a highly valued master pattern made entirely of leather and fur. By deconstructing the vest, new forms are created. The vest artefact is known as a very close — fitting and tightly fitting garment, while I create this garment sculptural form as a mega large, soft and comfortable garment composition. By denaturing the colors from the artifact, a gentle palette of earthy tones is obtained that irresistibly resembles a forest. The garment is constructed from uniquely tailored long strips that are then hand — woven with eco-leather. The mimicry of the pattern with the appearance in nature has a wonderful relationship with the field and the forest.
