The first ±Easy Piece Modular:|:woven is a collaboration between Runa Juhanisdotter/Bybaba and Lene Madsen/Leluma Design. The prototype is based on pattern 2.0, and made for Runa to be worn and tested. It is a wild collage of fabric scraps from her personal collection down memory lane*, plus a cool screenprinted patch by Berlin artist Pirate Stitches a.k.a. Roger Jürschik.
When tested and approved the pattern and button/hole distances will be standardized and open source. (We already know that one button has to be altered on the second prototype.) Not much fabric was left by the way and the remaining scraps will be repurposed. The buttons (38 in total for this size) were sourced at local thrift store; Borås Biståndscenter. The second prototype, made for Lene, is in progress.

by Leluma Design
This is the second prototype inspired by The 3erlin Grid. Based on pattern 1.0. Execution by Lene | Leluma Design.
Adapted to work on a moving body. Sleeves, back and front panels are designed as separate, interchangeable moduls joined by buttons.
On the second prototype a button joining the sleeves to the front panel had to be moved. This prototype is a ‘rough’ size M-L, and upcycled from old textiles collected at Borås Textile Museum. Some measurement adjustments were made to profit from the full width of the former grey patterned curtain (see measurement list). The fabric has been naturally dyed and there is embroidery work in progress. Here Runa is showing off one set of ‘textile building blocks’.
