These Dobby weaving samples explore the color pink, and its traditional associations with flesh and femininity. Drawing inspiration from cloyingly sweet imagery, and using various textures and weave structures, they subvert pink into something that is powerful, assertive, and on the verge of grotesque. Selected samples are shown in application, as a collection for apparel that is meant to protect and empower the wearer.
