scHmates - tie for Hermes
"schmates" is the yiddish word meaning fabric, cloth, rag.
Working on material related to fabric craft constitutes a tribute to david's grandfathers who both were involved into fabrics business.
Landscape, second skin, scarification, define a proposal working on the thickness of a material: leather or silk. More than just a graphic two-dimensions pattern, RELIEF explores techniques related to textiles craft, using sewing and pleating to generate a three-dimensional pattern.
