Pluviagraphic: Happy With The Rain Accessories by Aliki van der Kruijs turns silk into a pluviograph of sorts, able to record rainfall, creating individually unique rain-patterned ties, handkerchiefs, and shawls.
Details: Limited edition. Each item comes with location, date, time-interval and mm of rain of its rain-print. The proprietary Made by Rain process uses a water-sensitive film coating on textiles. Crowdfunded.
Designer: Amsterdam-based Aliki van der Kruijs has a 2012 Master of Applied Arts degree from the Sandberg Instituut, BAs in graphic and fashion design, and specializes in textiles, “working with nature as a tool in the production of prints, form and colour.”
