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?
