Abstract [en]

This work began as an investigation of tufting within fashion design. It is in- teresting because there is a lack of tufting within fashion design, especially of long tufted fringes. How can a technique that is usually used for interior design, for example rugs, be brought successfully into a fashion context? The question how to create longer fringes than usual for tufting emerged after experiments made in various materials. In order for the machine to create long fringes, lighter materials like plastic were tested and also differ- ent ways of using the machine. Since the tufted expression became very organic with the long plastic fringes, tufted try-outs were made in geometric shapes to see what hap- pened at the front of the garment. Would the geometric shape totally disappear? It was decided to take the plastic material further together with more tra- ditional materials for tufting like wool and linen, in order to get the expres- sion of both lengths and materials in the fringes and to investigate how they could be combined in interesting ways on the human body. During the way it was found that the long plastic fringes together with the traditional materials needed a flat contrast, and that is when the plain tuft- ing weave was introduced as an important part of the garment with differ- ent placements of the tufted areas, which give great shape and volume to the garments. There are great possibilities to find new expressions through tufting with long fringes within fashion design, shown in this work. If the technique is developed with fashion in mind, could it be a technique used to replace parts of the fur industry?
