A series of hand-crafted and machine-made traditional knits from Hailuoto provide ways to understand clothes-making processes, their differences and their future.

The Hand/Machine project provides views on clothes-making methods by presenting a series of industrially and hand-crafted traditional knits from Hailuoto and documentation about the processes. The history of traditional knits goes back to the beginning of the 19th century and provides a benchmark for times when people knew where the clothes came from and how they were made. This work studies the connection between production methods and consumption and uses knitwear to show the differences between methods, purposes and value from the point of view of designer, maker and user.

Held at the palace at Erottaja 2, the Room with a View exhibition consists of about thirty rooms which each provide a different perspective on design work. The participants invited to exhibit represent various design fields, including clothing design, glass art, research, furniture design, graphic design and architecture.

Open from 11 am to 7 pm every day except Monday, 9 September.
