Rhoko x Aeand Studio | Ruth Asawa
A collaboration with Aeand Studio, each screen-printed design is an homage to some of our favourite woman artists to celebrate International Women’s Day. This design is influenced by our love of modernist wire sculptor: Ruth Asawa.
Asawa is best known for her looped-wire sculptures, which challenge conventional notions of material and form. She began creating the light, transparent works in the late 1940s. “I found myself experimenting with wire,’’ Asawa explained: “I was interested in the economy of a line, enclosing three-dimensional space…. I realised that I could make wire forms interlock, expand, and contract with a single strand, because a line can go anywhere.’’
A portion of the sales will be donated to Gurl Talk a charity that provides resources and a safe space for young womxn and gxrls to discuss mental health, sexuality, self-care, anxiety, body image, loneliness, relationships, depression, and social Justice.
Each piece is screen printed by hand using plastic-free water-based inks and printed on strong and durable paper which is 100% cotton rag from recycled t-shirt offcuts. Aeand Studio prefers to work with a small independent business Khadi, established in 1980 who has been working with their Indian paper mill for over 20 years.
