Innovative Knitting Techniques

Zola is the result of a project exploring the boundaries of knitting techniques. In this project an innovative knitting technique was developed resulting in a scarf with hidden parts in the zigzag pattern. When the knitted structure is stretched, the hidden parts of the scarf will be exposed. Because of using a photochromic dye in the textile, the hidden parts of the scarf will change colour when they are exposed to sunlight. The concept was inspired by the defence mechanisms of animals.
