Technical Skin
This collection is Inspired by man-made protective-wear such as knights body armour and modern day police uniforms, combined with protection that is found in nature, in-particularly 
Armadillos, Porcupines, and reptile skins. Jacob created a woven collection exploring a range of materials including Kevlar, reflective, flourescent and irredescent yarns and porcupine quills to give some of the fabric its own protective qualities. The collection uses different techniques to manipulate the fabrics’ surfaces to create exaggerated textures, in a rich sombre colour palette.
