Helen Rödel, a Brazilian fashion designer, creates modern, edgy, colorful, one of a kind pieces using traditional techniques.
I love how Helen plays with color in this piece. The rich burgundy is timidly peaking out of the white background. I am so inspired now to try this technique in different color combinations and stitch patterns.
The dress with the same color mixing technique.

Each piece is unique and so inspiring!
One of my favorite pieces. I LOVE the sleeves! What a simple/genius idea.
Helen was born at the South of Brazil, where a lot of women knit and crochet. Helen decided to develop her brand there, because it allows her to contract local crafters to preserve the traditional craftsmanship. I think it’s absolutely amazing. So many unemployed women who live there can actually make an income while knitting and crochet and working with the brand.
You can look up more works by Helen Rödel on her website.
Have a nice crafty weekend!
