In Pleo, one finds perhaps the most unmistakable extrapolation of insect wing folding patterns in the entire edition. Its surface appears to glisten with the iridescent, gossamer-like quality of insect wings, while the spine down its middle is reminiscent of the unexpected diversity of textures on insects. This design is expertly tufted by skilled artisans.
