Etch simulates the organic variation of hand-drawn lines animated by orientation and rhythm. A randomized cadence of color and directionality within a structured grid. In pursuit of individuality on a mass scale, Etch’s large-scale field of stripes reveals intricate shifts upon closer inspection. The resultant textile personalizes an archetypal motif while challenging the homogeneity of commercial production.
