THE SMELL OF SLEEP

“We are such stuff as dreams are made on; and our little life is rounded with a sleep.”

(c.)William Shakespeare

During ‘The Smell of Sleep’ project I was investigating ways that can accelerate and make the falling asleep process more pleasant. I was trying to create something that will make you use more than one sense in order to fall asleep faster. That is why I created a textile piece incorporated with smell. The outcome was knitted using yarns of different thickness that were dyed using berries and fruits as natural dyes that give a slight fruity scent to the material.

The textile piece is supposed to go around the body in any desirable way for a better comfort. It also has small pockets for the hands, allowing you to keep them warm and even rest your head on them.

sospIn addition to that, I also designed my own perfume and packaging for it. It is created using essential oils and represents my best and happiest memories that I would like to think about before falling asleep.
