Ballistic Rose

Design: Tobias Wong
Manufacture: Self Manufacture, Toronto, ON
Date: 2006

This fashion accessory pulls fashion up from its shallow tradition and establishes a new high water mark. This rose is made from the same textiles as a bulletproof jacket (ballistic nylon) and is to worn over your heart to protect it in dangerous times. A designed object that genuinely protect the user in both a physical and spiritual sense.
