By joining handmade wooden skis and traditional Slovak blueprint fabric which is created by hand-printing with indigo dye, a new unique Slovak product has been created – the blueprint ski. A pair of craft masters Viktor Devečka and Matej Rabada, who are behind the project said, they had to experiment when creating it.
They met each other at the event for young designers called Pecha Kucha in Nitra.
“Viktor came to me, saying that it should be possible to use the blueprint fabric for skis,” said blueprint printer Rabada, as quoted by the TASR newswire. “So we got into this.”
The biggest challenge when creating the blueprint skis was to find a way to apply the cloth correctly to the construction of the skis, Devečka said.
