Project Description

PABUKU - known for its distinctive collage art - puts Victorian illustrations into a contemporary context, plays with subtle humour, queerness and uses storytelling as a universal language.

With "TUTU", collage art was implemented for a textile everyday object - a half-linen tea towel. The motif was not printed but jacquard woven instead. Pfleger Luxury Weaving from Upper Austria was the ideal production partner.

Jacquard weaving has the following interesting background: it was the punched card system patented by Joseph-Marie Jacquard in 1804 to control thread lifting and lowering that made the Jacquard loom the first "programmable" machine and thus the foundation stone of today's automation.

As with other works by the studio, the design leaves a great deal of room for interpretation. In any case, it is an extraordinary eye-catcher that appeals to several senses at once.
