Intricately Patterned Clothing Is Constructed From Hand-Cut Paper

Paper Cut Clothing by Stratis Tavlaridis

With his perforated paper constructions, Greek artist Stratis Tavlaridis challenges viewers to pay more attention to the graceful beauty of everyday household items. Shirts, vests, and even underwear, all traditionally relegated to the realm of the commonplace, find new elegance when fabricated with his painstakingly precise touch.

Each newly imagined paper textile is sliced into intricate patterns that resemble fine embroidery or woven cloth. Some of the designs appear more modern and geometric, while others look as loose and soft as sweaters. Light shines gently through the delicate cut-outs as the pieces hang in the showroom for view and admiration, given the freedom to float and flutter in fresh air—so unlike the typical garments we squeeze into closets or pack tightly into drawers.
