Embekke – Future Origin – JD Annual Design Awards 2017
Collection Name: Embekke
Students Names: Latha Shetty C
Embekke, which signifies the oldest Sri Lankan temple built with wooden carvings, is a fine ornament created with the same significance. The carvings display detailed precision and craftsmanship. Influenced and inclined by the wooden architecture, the designer has produced a headgear with recyclable materials. The base of the headgear is made with jute fabric which encapsulates a metallic wire to provide structure. Pista shells are also utilized to create flowers that are superimposed in a circular formation to the base and continue until the ear. The headgear is also supported with a mask which is suspended from the base and is made with jute thread. The avant-garde piece is completely organic and eco-friendly due to its composition and can be adorned as a spiritual jewellery in the modern world.
