Austin Motel Bandana x ELOI
A custom collaboration between the Austin Motel and Austin-based artist, Paige Russell of ELOI.
30% silk 70% cotton bandana. 25" x 25". Hand hemmed.
Starting out of construction paper cutouts, Austin-based, ELOI reproduces this technique onto silk twill, transcending the two-dimensional originals, yielding the ability to manipulate and experience the art in infinite, utilitarian ways.
"Everyone congregates at the kidney shaped pool whether you're a guest at the Austin Motel or not. I was keeping in mind how the pool summons me, personally, to drink too many Aperol Spritzs at a pool party and fall asleep in the sun.
The pattern was created entirely out of construction paper cutouts then printed on a silk/cotton blend (and hand hemmed), giving it the feel of a vintage hankie." - Paige Russell
