  • One of my first posts I ever wrote was about the work of art by the extraordinarily Atara de Lange.
    Have you ever thought about knitting with rubber? Well, I sure didn’t until I first stumbled upon her one of a kind creations.
    Since then, Atara got bigger and better than ever!
    Join me for a One On One Break with this unique lady.

I’d love to hear about you, your journey, how it all began.
I am a textiles and fashion designer. I knit accessoires from eleastic thread. Since I designed my graduation project at the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design, I’ve been working and experimenting with elastic threads.
How is it like working with a rubber?
Knitting rubber requires special tools. I use special knitting needles made out of wood in various sizes.
The naked rubber is a natural material, produced by the rubber tree and it deteriorates as time passes. My items are handmade and one of a kind.
What is the most unusual piece you have ever designed?
In my eyes, all of my designs are unusual. At the moment they are being sold in museum shops around the US. The fact that my designs are being sold at the MoMA Store in New York, is a great honor for me.
What’s next? What is your dream?
I hope and dream that all of this will go on and develop into something bigger.
If you had an extra hour each day what would you do with it?
If I could have an extra hour, I would definitely do some yoga.
I’m curious to know where does your inspiration come from?
My inspiration comes from within and also by working and playing with different materials.
Can you tell me which websites and blogs do you visit regularly?
I have to admit that I don’t spend too much time on blogs and various websites.
