Kustaa Saksi

i am quite transfixed by the trippy weavings of Finnish designer & artist Kustaa Saksi, who manufactured the collection, called Hypnopompic, using the Jacquard weaving technique. the weavings are made of mohair, alpaca wool, cotton and metallic acrylic thread.

Hypnopompic refers to a state of sensory confusion leading out of sleep, when the state of awakening gets mixed with the dream world into a surreal reality. It is an exceptional state of consciousness, in which one may experience the presence of, or see creatures and animals, such as spiders, monkeys and insects. Hypnopompic state has also been affiliated with visual delusions caused by migraine. These graphic patterns, designs and textures are thought to have contributed to the traditions of ornamentation, mosaic and textile.
