Basket weaving and the concept of a basket as a storage space has its roots in many cultures thus making it a global object with diverse origins. Basketry is made from a variety of fibrous or pliable materials, anything that will bend and form a shape [...] SOUPLE is a series of elastic baskets made with zero prior basketry knowledge. The materials used at the initial phase of the project, were found in supermarkets or Chinese store shelves or as magazine gifts. Starting from Youtube video tutorials, I began weaving tiny baskets, using materials commonly used in knitting or cooking. While searching for new types of materials, I stumbled upon some fabric yarns on Etsy, made by a Danish girl who uses old cotton T-shirts and turns them into rolls of yarn. The idea of using materials sourced online for my online tutorial lessons suddenly made sense. In one of my Google searches, I came across some old knitted projects made with huge knitting needles. I found something similar for my -recently acquired capacity to knit- at the awesome Lanar Shop (a company that produces yarns and organizes knitting courses) along with some Italian made wool yarns, which give my project a more refined effect. The rest was a matter of repetitious experimenting with my constantly-updated-internet-knowledge in order for my weaving-knitting endeavor to evolve. What fascinated me was the fact that when I used the knitting techniques I achieved an elasticity that the traditional weaving techniques and materials didn't offer me. The idea of the elastic space always interested me and the texture of the flat boring feeling of lycra or other elastic fabrics cannot be compared with the ever-changing texture of the knitted yarn. At least not til now!
