צעיפים בעבודת יד- חלקם בעלי מראה תיאטרלי ודרמטי וחלקם יומיומיים יותר. הדגמים משלבים אלמנטים מהעולם הימי, שבטי ע”י חזרה של אותה צורה/פעולה פעמים רבות ודגש על גולמיות הבד והשימוש בצורות בסיסיות. הבד הגולמי משתנה בעקבות מניפולציות עיבוד פשוטות מגוונות (גזירה,קשירה,תפירה,צביעה וכו’..,) וכך נוצר חומר טקסטילי אחר, עשיר בטקסטורה ובצורה, שגם במהלך חייו משנה את צורתו בהתאם לאופן לבישתו… להמשך קריאה באתר>>

Frog | Einat Burg | Shawl Madness | December 27.11

•    Einat Burg and her “Frog” fabrics are no strangers to DesignBreak. “Curiosity is a wearable raw material” is one of those sayings that Einat believes in with passion.
Her latest handmade gauze wrap stole shawls defiantly fall under the show stopper category. With the help of model and dancer Tamar Soon, I’m experiencing a shawl madness.
All these magnificent shawls are awaiting at Frog’s Etsy Shop.

We just felt in love when we first saw the store of Einat
She is an art school graduated designer which ispects the details of fabric and textile manipulation.”As an art school graduate my designs inspect the details of fabric and textile manipulation, until it becomes a whole new and fascinating material. The accents of my work is to explore the process and changeability of different materials and finally capturing it in a finished product.” – Einat herself. We see the love of the work and fabrics back in the designs we got from Einat. We’ve decided to style 3 necklaces in 3 very different ways:

With the holidays over and the cold weather getting a tad closer — finally — it’s time to sharpen up the fall wardrobe. Sandals and sleeveless options are heading to the back of the closet, while sweaters, sleeves and closed shoes are re-entering the wardrobe, and, yes, it’s time.
Yet while we’re beginning to feel that chill in the air, it’s not as if winter is fast approaching. That takes some time, even into November, and in certain parts of the country, a winter coat is never actually necessary, except, perhaps, on the rainiest of days.
That’s why many local designers only design two collections each year, one for the long summer, and another for the fall/winter season.
“We don’t need more than that,” shrugged KedemSasson, during a recent morning in his Tel Aviv studio. “Israeli-designed clothes work for most of the year.”
Still, you need to gussy up last year’s standards with some fresh pieces and accessories. Check out our picks below for what to look for this season.

1. Think about a piece from KedemSasson, king of conceptual clothing, designed in blowsy, full lines, made for all sorts of sizes, from tall and slim to those of average height and perhaps slightly less slim than they used to be. Having just returned from a summer trip to Kenya, where he styled, designed and photo shot his work in African environs, Sasson’s fall collection is full of his usual monochrome grays and blacks, but brightened by azure blue or tweed jackets. What’s more, many of the pieces can be worn in different ways, first buttoned as a dress, then opened for a jacket, and, for the most part, as said, can be worn any time of year. “My clothes are for endless seasons,” said Sasson, during a recent fitting. “I’m all about fitting women.”

2.  Don’t feel like investing in clothing? Understandable. It can get pricey. Think about updating last year’s pieces with jewelry. YanivBaranes hasn’t even started selling his one-of-a-kind necklaces and bracelets in stores, but the hardware-conceived pieces are sure to thrill buyers. Baranes started playing with his father’s hardware store washers and bolts back when he was still a kid, and his dad had hopes that he’d end up running the store. But the Shenkar-trained graduate went in a different direction, first making a curtain for his one-bedroom apartment out of washers, and then experimented with dipping the metal pieces in electrostatic tubs of black paint. Now he’s stringing them together — painstakingly — in modern breastplate necklaces and chunky bracelets. “I didn’t think I’d do this,” said Baranes, who markets his handmade jewelry via Instagram. “But I love figuring it out.”

3. For another accessory addition, try Guy Gil on Sheinkin in Tel Aviv. The former Jerusalem-bred hairdresser was biding time in the clothing store he owned in Tel Aviv when he started playing around with beads and plastic pieces, eventually hitting upon his intensely colorful combinations of necklaces, earrings and bracelets that he now sells in his Sheinkin store. He sculpts the plastic pieces himself, laser cutting sheets of bright plastic into various shapes that are then strung with the beads Gil collects and buys. “I want each piece to stand out,” said Gil, “and mine are one-offs. When you wear one, you know no one else is going to be wearing the exact same thing.”

4. How about a scarf made of swimsuit fabric? Einat Burg was working in stage costumes when she found herself playing around with scraps of fabric, fashioning light-as-a-feather necklaces and scarves. The 33-year-old Tel Aviv designer, a graduate of the Kibbutzim College, founded the label FROG, specializing in her unique method of processing textiles. She uses layers upon layers to compliment different bodies and figures, winding and wrapping the geometrical and versatile designs. “My creations can change their look and mood according to the way they’re worn,” said Burg. “Every item is versatile, and can upgrade any outfit.”
FROG collections are sold in selected boutiques around Israel and via her website.
5. It’s just about time to throw a little something on in the cool evening air, like a bamboo sweater or soy shawl. Try Toosha, from mother-and-daughter pair Tom and TzameretMoatty, who started playing with bamboo threads while Tom was still studying at Shenkar, and realized they were onto something. They now import bamboo, soy and cotton thread from abroad, and then dye and weave their featherlight scarves and sweaters in a palate of muted, quiet hues in their Jaffa studio. What’s wonderful about the sweaters is that they’re cool to wear when it’s hot out, and warm when it’s cool out.
