wax-on clothing

in collaboration with  Tom Gottelier from Featuring-Featuring

As an off-shoot of a previous project, Dreaming in CMYK, "wax on" is an exploration of the traditional technique of waterproofing cotton / waxed cotton. Waxed CMYK pigments are melted onto cotton to create vibrant and unique patterns whilst simultaneously waxing the fabric to make it waterproof.

The careful, handcrafted technique of waxing the pattern onto the fabric is contrasted with simple, mass produceable clothing designs, inventing an exciting new aesthetic for traditionally functional rain gear.
