The Endless Garment

THE ENDLESS GARMENT

ECCO Leather creates bespoke leather for the artist Korakrit Arunanondchai and designer Philip Huang for an installation in the show 'The Endless Garment' exhibition in Beijing.



The indigo dyed leather hides are the results of collaborative developments between Philip Huang and ECCO Leather, with the ambition to create a new process and leather using natural indigo. The indigo from Sakon Nakhon is fermented in the traditional way and the result is the creation of blue indigo-dyed leather without any synthetics. The desire is to merge two ancient materials together in the purest way possible. The leathers are created with ECCO Leathers Dritan technology and dyed in ECCO leather's unique indigo recipe before stills from Korakrit's video "Painting with History in a room filled with men with funny names" is digitally printed on top.

OUR DIGITAL PRINTER

The level of detail achieved with digital printing is exceptional and the colors vivid. Achieving the notable sharpness of the image is due to the use of a raster image that is sent directly to the printer with the help of digital files and graphic software applications.

The leather will be set in a womb-like installation structure that contains remnants of the lives that the color and dye Indigo touched, from New York City to Isan, to the tannery in Dongen where the printing was made before coming together in China in the X-Museum in Beijing.
