I'm glad to be behind the loom again.
It has been a while.
This scarf is for a girl I was in school with a very long time ago,
but always nice to 'discover' each other again. :-)
The last picture shows the motif that will repeat now and then,
but there will be many other suprises...
(but don't mind the colour in that photograph,
taking pictures in the evening is risky business...)
I'm back to the loom now.
Before you leave, maybe watch this video.
The beauty of tapestry...

They are installed!
The hotel opens next week as a part of Interieur 2014.
I had a sneak peak of the rooms
and I was impressed.
My curtains are inspired by the building itself.
When I walked through the rooms the first thing
that caught me were all the tiles and colours.
I took photographs of each room and selected all colours out of the pictures.
They became the vertical lines.
So (almost) each colour present in the building is present on the fabric.
I made for all 4 windows a different drawing of white lines on the coloured lines.
The drawing evolves from simple to complex,
but in subtle way.
The designs are digitally printed on cotton.
A real photoshoot is following,
I hope to give you more pictures!

the black and white scarf.
Our trip to England has been great:
we found a few suppliers of wool
and good materials to dye with,
so I'm ready to experiment.
We did beautiful walks in the Yorkshire Dales,
met lots of sheep, enjoyed wind and sun,
and ate and drank too much.
Since monday we also have a new little friend Tokio.
You can see her here. :-)
Our nephew found her on the street alone
and we couldn't resist...
Don't forget about Eyes/Nights Only,
my curtains are printed,
but haven't seen them yet,
so again more news next time! :-)
