iF concept design award

Indigenous Atayal weaving is a national treasure of Taiwan's aboriginal culture. Users can easily perceive the weaving experience of the Atayal spirit through our concept design embedded with the interactive technology in a Tablet PC. Atayal Weaving Box mimics the form of gift box, translating the beauty of Taiwanese aboriginal craftsmanship. The gift box contains a set of materials and tools for weaving and the box itself can also be easily assembled into a simple Atayal weaving loom. The entire package is used. After gaining some experience, users cannot only learn weaving skills but also get a customized woven fabric for their own reward.

"Great product, sustainable in every aspect - from the use of recycled & recyclable materials, to the aspect of bringing back (recycling as well) a beautiful traditional craft. To bridge the gap of the not-so-easy learning process of weaving, it establishes a clever link with the "tablet generation", bringing together tradition and the support of technology."
Jury Statement
<p> Atayal weaving conveys the traditional aesthetics of aboriginal culture in Taiwan. The beauty of natural materials and patterns are worthy of global promotion. We deeply appreciate receiving this award and are glad to have the opportunity to make more people aware of the unique beauty of Atayal weaving.</p>
