Natural blend: Paper textiles by Marian de Graaff

Dutch designer Marian de Graaff launched a series of textiles made from a blend of paper and cotton yarns using different crochet and knit stitches. Each of Marian de Graaff’s tactile Paper textiles have irregular structures and textures. Called Zand1 and Zand2, the machine washable textiles can be used for various interior applications, including wall hangings, room dividers, curtains, cushions and clothing. Because the paper is untreated, the fibers are hygroscopic and will expand and shrink in humidity, changing the appearance of the whole textile.
