For the green host, visit her with a gift from Loewe’s Weave, Restore, Renew: a poliform project that revolves around the idea of giving new life to things that might have been forgotten or discarded, and turning them into new, unique pieces. Techniques used include the Galician straw-weaving tradition known as Coroza and the Korean technique of paper weaving known as Jiseung. Loewe gave 240 existing baskets from all over the world —each one with its own peculiar shape, function and level of distress to mend and repair using leather strings and the result is a series of unique baskets that are playful and surprising.
