Irachnae

Irachnae

Magnetic Midnight’s collection, Irachnae finds its inspiration in the splendor of the spider’s weaving and the beauty of the Iraca palm leaf. It takes its name from a combination of the material it is made from, and the name of the skilled weaver Arachne, who in Greek mythology was turned into a spider for challenging the goddess Athena with her talent. This collection celebrates both materiality and skill found in nature. Made out of Palm leaf dipped in gold (or silver), each piece is woven with intricate patterns and organic forms of flower petals, leaves, spirals, and waves into a beautiful lace-like web. The gold, shines on each piece like the morning dew on the spiders web, highlighting the intricacy of natural geometry and contrasting the beauty of the Iraca palm.
