TRACES OF HANDSIssey Miyake the way of freedom

The history of mankind has been
made by hands.

  Hands that gained freedom through evolution, learning to gather food, make tools, and grow crops. These hands learned to offer prayers, shake hands, draw pictures, and decorate themselves. And still today, peoples’ hands seek further freedom. Cloth too, seeks freedom. Hands have been weaving, sewing, and giving new shape to cloth. Yet, what if we could play with the shape more freely as if kneading dough or molding clay? Issey Miyake’s new challenge makes that possible. A free and flexible cloth that invites the hands to play, Dough Dough. A new history commences carved out with your hands. Twisting, rolling up, crumpling, folding, or stretching—a cloth that you can freely play with and enjoy changing into any shape like dough. That is Dough Dough.
