The collection has been made using woven threads normally used for fishing nets, the designs are all different and original, like their names. Handwoven,they are human in their imperfections and flaws.

The Arco cocoon is designed using simple curves and radiuses.
While weaving, the frame, is under tension which enforces the visual language of the curves.
Each of the woven surfaces is in contrasting colours to emphasise the curvy shapes.
