PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Multifunctional Wrap

INSPIRATION:
One day I discovered my hands. Life dealt me a life and death situation that halted my steps forward for a while. I would spend several years sitting around in a body that needed rest and with a mind that was in overdrive. I desperately needed occupation but had real physical limitations. It was then that I started to knit. I realized the power of the tools I had dangling right there on the end of my two arms! My hands. It was a wonderful feeling to think of something and then do everything I could to knit it to life. I could dream again. I could think without fear. And I had my future back. My hands gave me that. Loop comes from this backdrop. Loop is a line item in Brand Daato: fashion and home accessories made by hand. Loop is a magnificent piece. Loop is a most complex product execution. And Loop was made 100% by hand. In a world of escalating global automation employment opportunities shrink and change, particularly affected are Rural and Regional areas around the globe. Loop was designed and made in Rural Australia, where all Daato brand is now manufactured. Loop has proudly created paid work for Rural hands in Australia. 'You are never down on luck if you have a good pair of hands'. Designer: Miranda Pereira
