A flexible concrete textile for fashion and other experiments
Flexible and wearable, this concrete textile is made by spraying a thin layer of specially formulated flexible concrete membrane on a outdoor textile. Suitable for various applications, from futuristic clothing to unusual pillow covers, durable and water resistant, this experimental material is perfect for exploring the interaction between concrete and other materials, with new and unconventional uses.
One such example is the Concrete Dress, made in association with BlackPearl. Conceptualised and made in a short period of time for the young designers' competition Ferrara Fashion in Rome trough a series of experiments with fabric and concrete mixtures, the dress was made: a lightweight, durable and fantastically tactile garment.
