There’s paper and paper. Tyvec®, for example, cannot be ripped and is worn by scientists in their laboratories. But there’s a young Israeli designer who brings it into the world of fashion with "The Rhythm of Paper".

She didn’t want to make just another paper dress. Spectacular in shape but delicate in wear, to be thrown away at the first tear or splash of water, after months of work.

No, with a degree in arts and technology from Kibbutzim College of Education in Tel Aviv, Hila Martuzana aims much higher, to the top of the line when it comes to materials.

It’s called Tyvec®, is produced by Dupont, and is an evolved technological textile. A light and elastic barrier against inorganic liquids, particles and drops.

It’s the fabric with which Hila made "The Rhythm of Paper", 4 dresses inspired by the seasonal cycle and the sensations that accompany it.

Each piece is a synthesis of transition: of climate, movement, rhythm, emotion, odor. Each garment fuses two seasons using different motifs, dimensions and quantities of Tyvec®.

But the sewing theme and technique are the same for each piece. An homage to the image and perception of time as a continuous flow interrupted only by infinite circular movements.
