Masaki Komoto: Calendar 2024: Plaid

Plaid takes woven plaid pattern as its motif

Cross stitched entirely by hand , the embroiedered calendar’s composition references the thread pattern of plain weave, a simple and common where warp and weft threads intersect at right angles forming a criss-cross pattern.

The plaid composition of the calendar similarly alludes to this criss-cross pattern, using 7 colours to create different blocks of colour expressions for each calendar month. The typography used takes influence from typefaces typically featured in traditional samplers, with each letter’s width being modified to fit the plaid pattern grid. The embroidery has then been photographed and offset printed to a 1:1 scale in full colour. Each calendar comes pre-folded in a hand numbered envelop.

‘Calendar 2024: Plaid’ can be used as a decorative print or as a functional calendar. If you wish to use it as a calendar, carefully separate the sheets along the perforated lines by hand.
