Wearable sculpture Loops by Yogesh Chaudhary and Manas Barve just made my day! Talented designers from India are winners of the 2010 Montana Supreme World of WearableArt Award – WOW in Wellington, New Zealand.
Chaudhary and Barve have made Loops entirely of merino wool felt because they wanted to raise the importance of sustainability. They used only laser-cutting and seamless knitting while creating this innovative sculpture.
