Mistletoe, Straw, Recycled Silk Fabric and Yarn on Styrofoam

Iulia Filipovscaia 

I ve been interested in weaving more recently and am planning to make bigger work using weaving technique with all kinds of unusual materials. Mistletoe I bought last Christmas (Dec 2017) for myself. Silk fabric is from a Stella McCartney dress that someone gifted to me, it is so old the dress was tearing in different spots. The other silk is pieces of the leftover Loro Piano yarn I bought for my brand Lana Siberie. I have been running my brand for about 5 years now but I didn’t manage to grow it big either due to my interest in one of kind items ( as fashion is quantity), lack of money to invest or possibly as some of my friends say because I wasn’t commercial. With this piece I say: If I cant have a brand, meaning, at least can have a mini recycled dress that satisfies me.

Mistletoe has a magical significance, because of the plants apparent ability to spontaneously appear without roots.
