Sanne Bax, a student from Gerrit Rietveld Academy of Amsterdam in Holland, presented her Action Rope Series” project in 2016.
This is an extremely creative and innovative fabric, entirely made by her.
As she tells in the presentation video (https://vimeo.com/163399207) “spinning means making possibilities” and it’s with this idea in mind that she has designed her yarn made by mixing mohair wool fibers and nylon fibers derived from ropes that are normally used as boat ropes.
The cores of the ropes are made up of industrial textile leftovers and an outer nylon thread that Sanne has unrolled and yarned together with a woolen mohair wire.
Throughout hitting, weaving, knitting and crocheting, she has further succeeded in realizing a tapestry, marveling to the touch and visually impacting she achieved. Her final job is incredibly soft, colorful and varied.
