The crocheted art of Joana Vasconcelos

The incredible work of this artist, closely linked to the handmade fabric. Joana Vasconcelos was born in Paris in 1971. Lives and works in Lisbon and is one of the most interesting Portuguese artist. Their firm is among the most cited of international news. His work combines the popular and the conceptual, industrial design and a very peculiar poetic point of view that combines the intimate and exposed.

Yes, You Need to Hand Wash Your Cashmere (Don’t Dry Clean!)

jcrew:

contrary to popular belief, dry cleaning cashmere can actually be bad for the life of your sweater. the toxic chemicals used in dry cleaning can break down the fibers, and deodorant may cause discoloration. turns out, you should really be hand washing cashmere (it’ll be much softer too), so we asked Gwen Whiting and Lindsey Boyd from The Laundress for their advice. here, they break it down for us…

De-pill delicate knits using the The Laundress New York® for J.Crew sweater comb by stroking firmly in one direction.
image
Use The Laundress New York for J.Crew collars & cuffs stain bar to tackle any stains or areas that trap odor.
image
image
Fill a washbasin or sink with cool water and add two capfuls of The Laundress New York for J.Crew cashmere wash. Submerge the sweater and make sure it is evenly soaped all over.
image
Soak for 30 minutes (don’t worry if the water becomes colored; this is normal and won’t mean any loss of color post-wash).
image
Rinse well by running cool water through the item until the water is no longer soapy. Press the water out gently without wringing.
image
image
Lay your sweater flat on a towel in its natural shape. Roll up the sweater in the towel (like a sleeping bag) to remove excess water. Lay the item flat in its natural shape on a drying rack or a clean towel.
image
Remove lint, fuzz and hair with the cashmere brush. Spray all over with The Laundress New York for J.Crew cashmere spray to add a fresh scent and repel moths.
image
Fold to prevent stretching and place in a bag with a zip closure. Be sure to stay away from storage bags that are made of polyester or plastic—you want to store your cashmere in bags that are made of breathable cotton or linen.
