THE ORIENT - SCREENS

We offer two different screens. Both are constructed using traditional textile techniques from the village of Guizhou.

Tradition

Product Code: SCRG_001

Material: Metallic Yarn. Silk. Wool. Polyester. Walnut. Brass

Dimensions: H1750mm x W2209mm x D40mm

The Orient screen (Tradition) offers a glimpse of how traditional weave and tapestry are being fused together for a modern interpretation of Guizhou heritage textiles. The material has been hand woven in the UN/Fold hub by local artisans. The tapestry designs have been inspired by the motifs found of the traditional headbands which they wear daily. Experimenting with proportion and scale of these motifs the screen is a contemporary interpretation of their heritage.

Modern Marriage

Product Code: SCRB_002

Material: Woven Cotton. Red Bean Paste. Walnut. Brass.

Dimensions: H1750mm x W2209mm x D40mm

The screen is constructed from hand woven cotton. This is then treated with a red bean paste and beaten with a wooden hammer on stone. The coated material is then left out in the sun where the sugar from the paste crystalises and infuses the cotton. This process is repeated over 100 times and creates a naturally semi water repellent surface. This is how the glossy texture of the fabric is also created.

At The Fabrick Lab, we wanted to utulise the unique properties of this fabric by marriaging it with modern technology. We discovered that this cotton fabric is now able to be laser cut. This has innovated how natural materials can be applied, and showcased a different technique known to the region. This is the first time cotton has been laser cut. The shapes used are taken from traditional prints.
