Hadas Ilani – Needle and Thread. The project was born while contemplating on local material, the kind that is always around us and is embedded in our childhood memories. Hadas examined various methods of sewing pine needles into shoes. She created a collection that explores the possibilities of using pine needles as raw material, which allude to the gentle needle mat and the previous lives of the needles.
