Rumor by Bertjan Pot
Kvadrat Febrik presents Rumor by Bertjan Pot. It is the first knitted textile from Kvadrat Febrik crafted from over 70% post-consumer recycled polyester. Rumor’s design bridges the contrasting worlds of handcrafted textiles and the digital space to create landscapes of shifting colour and pattern intensity.
To design Rumor, Bertjan Pot converted an image into a set of randomly arranged pixels in four different colours, using the ‘diffusion dither’ tool on photo editing software. Following this, through a processive of extensive, hands-on experimentation with colours and pattern scaling, the design was translated into a knitted textile.
