Little Factory’s Typographic Textiles

Hong-Kong based Little Factory creates scarves, placemats, and coasters influenced by typefaces. The making of a font is a structural process, requiring grids to balance the various elements of the letter form. Little Factory’s deconstruction and re-composition of the shapes into distinctive arrangements, characterizes their application of graphic design. The collection of Helvetica scarves merges old and new influences – chinese paper cutting, one of the country’s most popular methods of folk art, and modern type design. The patterns, which are available in uppercase, lowercase, and numerals, are laser cut into microfiber suede material. Little Factory’s second series, letter-based coasters and number placemats, come in sets of 4 and allow the diner a typographic identity.
