Once dry, multiple coats of thinly applied linseed oil make a waterproof surface.
Practical tests were conducted in order to develop a manufacturing process by which multiple coats of linseed oil would impregnate the textile.
Adding pigment to the oil makes it a dye, while the final treatment of the oilcloth’s surface lends it a signature haptic. Thanks to the manual applications
developed here, every textile item is unique – and the long-forgotten technique of oil impregnation is revived as a tool of modern design.
