mia cullen’s tyvek curtain

I’m fascinated with Tyvek, a non woven, synthetic material known mostly for house wrap, priority mail envelopes and more recently, jewelry. Now Stockholm designer Mia Cullen takes it one step further, using the material to create unique textiles.

Cullen’s curtain ‘Flake’, pictured here, is made up of star shaped pieces of Tyvek that interlock to form a textile. Origami-ish, yes?  I want to play!

Many mixed media/fiber artists are experimenting with the material.  A quick search uncovered this interesting Tyvek experiment.

Have you played with your Tyvek lately?

  1. Home Depot and Lowes are going to become my new fav supply shops! 😀

    I must get my hands on some Tyvek… I wonder how many paper techniques can be translated to Tyvek? Tord Boontje has use Tyvek for several of his lighting pieces.

    Maybe I should become friends with construction workers? heheh 🙂
