The Singing Sand Collection responds to a mysterious desert phenomenon.
As sand slides down the slope of certain sand dunes, it produces a deep, reverberating hum. Calico wanted to pay tribute to this rare, awe-inspiring event by creating a collection that captures the vibrations, echoes, ripples, ridges, and waves created by shifting sands.
To create the collection, Calico used a technique of repetition with variation, exploring the parallels between the continuous shapes of sound waves and desert dunes. The result is a series of colorways that illustrate the movements of sound and sand.
The Singing Sand Collection journeys into the deep unknown of desert landscapes. As millions of minute grains of sand are moved by wind and weather, they create mesmerizing patterns that lead us to search for meaning within.
