Inspired by recently rediscovered photographic methods once used to classify fruit flies, Sensilla evokes a surprising diversity of textures. Even along the seemingly smooth surface of a wing, hints of turquoise and hair-like textures draw attention to the details that close examination of insects can reveal. This design is expertly tufted by skilled artisans.
