Project Description

Limited Edition Sewing Thread Card style handmade business cards designed for Montreal-based fashion label Matière Noire Studio.

Matière Noire (French for “€œdark matter”), is a Montreal-based contemporary fashion label that focuses on creating locally produced sustainable and high quality pieces. Matière Noire collections are characterized by mixing femininity/masculinity and tradition/modernity.

Production Lesson(s)

To reflect the high-quality and hard-working nature of the brand, materials were carefully picked and combined together. Each card hand-wrapped with natural black cotton thread that helped connecting raw materials used in the fashion directly with the brand identity.”
