Indexing colour in the technique of weaving was the departure point of this research. The Index Collection is series of tea towels and blankets. The total collection consists of 3 different colour series. Each series follows the same process, from Monotone, through Duotone, to Multitone, with the first shade taking the lead and a new tone will be added in the following step. The 'index' is especially designed to translate the amount of colour within each surface, by the usage of squares representing 10% to 100%.
The Index Collection has been developed at TextielLab, Tilburg and was made possible with support from the Eindhoven municipality and Stichting Stokroos.
The blankets are for sale and cost 375,- Euro including VAT. You can mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
