Sololá celebrates the artistry of Guatemalan women weavers.
Each purse upcycles a vintage huipil
(a traditional woman's blouse woven on the backstrap loom)
to create an individual statement.
Turned inside-out, the huipils are an explosion of color and hand work.
Each purse is assembled by Guatemalan artisans in Antigua
from textiles sourced at the famous Chichicastenango Market.
I want one!
For sale at http://graindesign.bigcartel.com/products.

Weaving two scarves at the same time.
This has nothing to do with speeding up my production,
it's just a 'white' and a 'black' one.
A little graphic experiment.
Also a different tie-up but the same threading.
No twins at all...

Found these nice old wool swatches in a secondhand shop,
probably handspun wool in very natural colours.
Some are soft, some are tickly...
Maybe I will use them, maybe not...

Designed by Mara Skujeniece:
"The series, 'Spool' vases arose from my interest and love for textiles. The design was inspired by the forms and structures of industrial yarn bobbins used in the weaving or knitting of fabrics. Varying in size, texture and structure, the family of vases is made of white porcelain."

How to discribe this one?
Coloured lines and blocks...
White, orange, yellow and shades of blue.
Light and decorative I guess... :-)
Tomorrow it is for sale at the shop of Aline Vandeplas,
and then on the website www.deinvasie.be.
"De Invasie" is an online shop with a bunch of talent
from Belgium and The Netherlands,
where you can buy exclusive items (like this scarf),
straight from the designer!
