The grande dame, the Ship of Theseus of indigo nylon with painted details
For a little escapism during what is turning out to be the snowiest NYC winter on record, I thought I would show these fabulous hand-crafted kites from Haptic Lab. Made with Balinese artisans of nylon and bamboo, each highly-detailed ship kite looks as beautiful against the blue sky as it would sailing the seas. The Brooklyn-based company, started by trained architect Emily Fisher, has been funded by Kickstarter, and combines cutting edge technology with craft.
