Where form meets function

iDsgn turns us onto Haik Avanian’s ingenious new project. Teaming up with his mum, the graphic designer asks people to send in old sweaters and his mum will reknit them into smaller accessories (the above picture is an example of this in action). So if you have an old sweater that you think would make a particularly natty hat, feel free to send it over to ReKnit. You’ll have to be quick though, orders are capped at 30 a month. As Avanian notes, “due to the unexpectedly overwhelming response in January, and because I only have one mom, we’ve decided to limit orders”. (The ReKnit Project)
