These jellyfish were born out of my interest in the woven palm-leaf artefacts traditionally made in southern Europe and South America. The beautiful opalescent packing strap, with its flexibility similar to that of palm-leaf strips, equally allows you to express your joys and yearnings, though sometimes disappointment creeps in, as you find out that for reasons of practicality packing straps are now rough and opaque.
