Nuue, originally called Wrapped Garment project, is named after a Korean word means cocoon.
Wrapping synthetic fibre around a desired form such as a wooden mannequin or a board. Through a heating process with pressure, wound fibre transforms itself into a 3-dimensional moulded garment bringing expected and unexpected sculptural silhouettes with flexible texture. The garment can be completed with only unitary fibre and heat. This technique reduces processes of making fabric from fibre, also from fabric to garment such as making/cutting pattern, and sawing. Therefore there is no leftover or wastage of material in this process.
Jungeun has been experimenting and researching unconventional methods of creating garments. Rethinking about the fundamental process of producing a garment has led her to the Nuue project. The conceptual garments and products that have been created through the discovered technique display the potential of this idea and a journey that she will continue to develop.
