The idea behind the fly lace is an idealistic attempt to cope with some of the complexities of modern life. The fly lace pattern represents a synthesis of two conflicting identities most of us are living with. We’re a product of nature on the one hand (in our original environment likely to be visited by flies), and ‘sophisticated’ members of society on the other (clad in elaborate man-made fabrics, covering up our smell and modifying our shape…)

The fly lace is a playful approach for functional members of society to be closer to themselves, remembering the wild creatures we are, or in this case, could be.
