The alchemy of latex - the calm and serene viscosity of rubber transmuted into a supple membrane. The process is risky and only the experienced alchemist knows how to make the unruly textile mild to the skin. Rebis - once body and matter are reconciled, HYDRA enables perspectives of holistic living via the translucent membrane as organic interface: bend your joint and with graceful resistance the material reflects your gesture. Given the opportunity to evade resistance, it glides smoothly over your skin. HYDRA Sartorial Latex is a tactile mirror of your movement patterns - a path to self-reflection in the here and now.
