The COPPER Project

The COPPER Project

The project is home grown by Botto to explore the possibilities of non textile raw materials for tactile use.

Copper was the chosen alloy given its maleability and possible technical use.

Different gauges of wire combined with 2/20’s cotton yarn on the loom were experimented with. Keeping in mind its electrical conductivity, maleability and flexibility, the project steered towards analysing these potentials.

The oxidization of copper in parts added hues of blues and greens.

As a product finally we developed mouldable rugs and yardage which could also be draped on furniture.
