Storytelling Through Patterns and Strings

BY MEGHAN PRICE

String Theory is a partnership between two textile designers, Lysanne Latulippe and Meghan Price. The name String Theory is borrowed from a theory of physics that says the world is made of vibrating strings. As constructed textile designers, the two designers work with the math and physics of fibres, yarns, knitting and weaving to develop structure, pattern and texture.
