The designs of One One Five incorporates block printing: graphic elements and symbols to create a beautiful pattern. Each element is then etched onto a wooden block, dipped in sustainable pigment and hand-printed onto the fabric, which is left to dry for days in the natural sun light.
Embroidery is also important for the designs of One One Five. Historically created by women, it is found in many ancient cultures. It was used as a means to tell stories, portray mythologies, and explain nature, passing on knowledge from generation to generation. Each intricate piece is woven together with another piece in order to create one big embroidered story. Added details such as mirrors, beads, coins and metallic threads all result in one-of-a-kind surfaces.
