Class of 2010 and PCA Ambassador Nour Hage created a limited edition scarf collection in 2014 named SOJI for her own brand.
Her designs are characterized by an intentional asymmetry and playful use of fabric, stemming from her belief in the Japanese wabisabi philosophy that states that nothing is permanent and that beauty lies in imperfection.
SOJI, means “recover” in Yoruba. It is a limited run of 10 scarves made from the cut-out fabric left over from the BLAO collection. While some might think it is odd to use these discarded scraps of material, I actually think it is a designer’s responsibility to not produce waste and to give every element the life it deserves. Basically, all design come with a degree of responsibility.
All the pieces were made using an arm knitting technique, where your arms act as huge needles. This means the stitches end up being much larger and the scarf has a lot of drape.
