Needle and Thread / shoes

Needle and Thread
Needle and Thread

A series of shoes constructed from pine needles;
Contemplating local material, I experiment consisted of finding different sewing techniques to keep the separate pine needle strands together, creating a textile which is then formed into shoes. the unique material choice is ecological due to its popularity in the region, the consideration of using pine needles as a raw material alluding to the gentle needle mat and the previous lives of the needles.
