Tapestry Sneaker Designs by Emma Sulzer



This year, we have seen sneaker creations out of just about anything including wedding cakes and wire frame sculptures just to name a couple. However, we have came across one of the better, unique sneaker creations in a long time.

Weaving, knitting and sewing are usually considered pastimes for an old woman sitting in a rocking chair; however, tapestry designer Emma Sulzer shows us that you can combine this pastime with a younger audience as well. Sulzer used her tapestry techniques to design sneakers such as the Air Jordan 5 “Grape”, the New Balance 850 “Skippy” and the Puma First Round just to name a few. Emma Sulzer stated that it took 40 hours to create each sneaker as she took a plastic sheet to create the frame of each sneaker and began to weave around the pieces for the final design. Is this one of the better sneaker creations you have seen?
