Using a technique that combines knitting with wearing, textile designer Moriel Dezaldeti createdher own unique brand of knitting art. As a whole, the collection has been named 'Organs,' and it takes inspiration from the movements of the human body in relation to the ways a fabric moves to accommodate the wearer.

Dezaldeti's unusual knitting sculptures have an organic feel to them, and since the collection is made from woven red and white yarns, it mimics the coloring of internal components of the body like muscles, tissue and blood cells. The crafty sculptures were created with the use of a manual knitting machine, achieving a balance of sinewy and structured forms. One of the wearable designs looks like the inner workings of the body, although it's not at all gruesome looking.
