christien meindertsma

from christien meindertsma, the creator of "checked baggage", a chronicle of guilty objects confiscated at Schiphol in a single week, comes the flocks project. flocks explores issues of consumerism, production process and the lost connection between farmer and final consumer. flocks is the result of christien's work with one farmer in Wales to create a clothing collection from one entire flock of distinctly wooly sheep. Each piece is created from the wool of a single sheep and includes a detailed biography of the animal, his or her ear tag and any prizes the animal has won.

rug handknitted from the wool of 18 merino sheep.

It's good to read this information from your post. You have an interesting way of drawing people in. Keep up the good works. It is also very useful if you can ask your designer to other logos that you like so that they have an idea of what style you are after.
