Three young creative realize wonderful softies from original ideas, but with common materials: reusing old vintage fabrics, pieces upholsterer or even clothing itself uninteresting like socks, give life to creations full of color and poetry.
Podobis. A world of fun!
The young Italian photographer Virginia Vittozzi realizes fun hand puppets giving new life to socks! His wonderful characters, brand Podobis, tell a dream and dazed universe, where even the most curious forms become pure beauty and joy! Virginia so he describes his creative idea: “I always had a thing for socks! Wear a pair of socks that I know is one of those things that puts me in a good mood to start the day.”
“It has always seemed that socks could have a possible life now as they were, some seem muzzles of horses, some geese from long neck or giraffes, snakes, ostriches and more. I love to take a second connotation to things, why not do it with socks? The basic idea is in fact from a pair of socks (clean eh!) And turn them into real toys, funny characters with whom to share the game of the life of every day.”
But the socks are not the only sources of inspiration for Virginia, which also manufactures sized puppets more, with different fabrics borrowed from upholstery and tailoring, and large colorful vintage buttons that used to make the eyes of her tender creatures!
