Taking place in Hangzhou Creative Design Centre, China Craft Week is the first integrated event that embraces the concept of craft innovation in China, a rising international platform for craftsmanship. Selected craft and design masters from around the world will exhibit their works and teach some skills to the visitors as well, introducing how the craft can be integrated into the everyday life.
Following the successful inaugural event in 2017, China Craft Week 2018 will continue use the exhibition as a platform to facilitate cultural interaction. In the name of culture, modernise traditional craftsmanship; in the name of craftsmanship, tell a series of world stories.
Riina O will be presenting our new luxurious retroreflective leather glove collection “Luciferase” and teaching archery-inspired glove making workshops.
An odd light in the dark. Mysterious and attention drawing.
Riina O latest glove collection has been inspired by bioluminescence - the miracles of nature from underwater to the stars.
Our muse for the season is Arda Alden Green - an American biochemist from the early 20th century, who despite being overshadowed by the greater names, made remarkable discoveries of her own. One of those was the reaction responsible for firefly bioluminescence, found by isolating firefly luciferase. Never fully recognised for her work we´d like to take the chance to honour her achievements.
In this collection Riina O introduces a striking new material for elegant wear - the high-tech retroreflective leather, luminous in the dark. The concept is highlighted by the glove “points” stitched in similarly retroreflective thread.
Riina O gloves range from stylish dress gloves with a twist to classy casual models and outstanding hand accessories. Classical craftsmanship is accompanied by laser cut patterns...
