Andrea Zittel’s Six Month Uniforms


Andrea Zittel

Andrea Zittel utilizes fibers and felting in many of her stunning “Six Month Uniforms” that are intended to be worn for much longer than the society she interacts with in them deems acceptable. Interestingly, Zittel developed her own crocheting process by replacing the crochet hook with her finger, allowing her to complete her work anywhere provided a single strand of yarn.

Zittel’s other work explores functional living, and she designs self-contained multifaceted units that compartmentalize an individual’s lifestyle into small, efficient spaces. It makes sense, then, that her textile work would focus in the durable ready-to-wear category… ready to wear everyday for the next six months, that is!
