Description

Textural and tactile, the jacket design “Cilia” explores conversations of the senses. The surface of the jacket is dimensional, offering play in the movement of each individual cilia-like felt tab. Cilia are finger-like organelles within some cells in the human body. Identical in structure to flagella, they line the surfaces of certain of our cells where they beat in rhythmic waves. They are an important part of many of our organs including eyelashes, the inner nose, and our digestive system.
