AUTUMN WINTER 2017

BIRD WATCHING

Birds, those noble figures with exquisite appearances. Wings brimming with beautiful colors and patterns. The sound of chirping that keeps birdwatchers rapt with joy. In many ways, birds have lived close to us, but environmental changes caused by humankind may drive away the wild birds who should be cared for. This season, we draw inspiration from numerous birds and have incorporated them casually into the textiles and designs. Images of birds, inspired by a beautiful color-plate book entitled “The Birds of America,” rendered in a cut jacquard, evoking the colorful feathers. An intricately embroidered square patterned textile, produced with a state-of-the-art machine capable of repeating large, high density pieces, conceals a small bird. This collection is strewn with assorted birds, created with the free will and ideas that HaaT is known for.
