Overcoming the resistance of material represents the biggest obstacle in the creation and production of textiles. The latest stoll collection reflects on this challenge, highlighting how versatile stoll machines handle complicated materials of all kinds. When it speak of materials in the context of knitting, it usually mean yarns – which are engineered to perform well in the knitting process. But in fact, there is a vast array of yarn-like materials it never think to use.
Stoll found inspiration in recycled plastic bags, silver foil, jute bags and other packaging materials. This collection was also inspired by African farm workers, whose workwear is often fashioned from a mix of upcycled second-hand clothes and found waste materials. The resulting outfits are unconventional, but also highly functional, stylish and rich in materials. Welcome to materialization.
