Close Knit Community

We could knit a poster!?
So we did.
Or rather, we found an artisan, Tash (literally, a two-minute walk from Folk) to knit it for us.

Obviously, the phrase exists for a reason: lots of things create one thing. Multiple strands. Different colours. One community.

We liked the idea that from afar it might look like a normal, if slightly pixelated, type-based poster. Close up, the pixels are real.
We liked the play on new and old technology. Cell by cell. Something truly digital, made by actual digits.

Tests were done. Wool ply and colours chosen.
We designed the pattern for Tash to lovingly create the finished poster, by hand.
It was then boxed-framed. (Also just around the corner from Folk.)

Ten different colours of hand-dyed, 100% wool spell COMMUNITY.
The poster, being wool, can be washed. It’s affixed to its frame with 86 antique different coloured buttons. Care Instructions and all.
