As designers, our DNA manifests our hands, which becomes our signature. An accumulation of our experiences in life, our creative pathways that, after many years of honing our craft, form a specific characteristic.
At this point in my life, as a designer, it is not a trend or aesthetic exercise that motivates or inspires me but working to evoke human emotion through clothing, cloth, or the creation of our intimate spaces.
As we're building TOTUM, we’re interested in exchanging ideas and thoughts with our community about what environmental wellness means to them, their special daily rituals, and what they do to create sacred spaces that bring them comfort and connection.
For our first conversation, we reached out to up-and-coming artist Jessica Wee. Citizen of the world, Jessica has been exploring the theme of identity through surreal dreamscapes at times inspired by rituals and moments of daily life.
For us environmental wellness begins in our most intimate spaces. The sacred spaces where you take time for yourself, practise self-care rituals, experience your most intimate moments and rest. So naturally, we focused our energy on re-thinking the textiles that spend the most time against our skin: our sheets.
