18.10.12 TO WEAVE OR NOT TO WEAVE



I haven't dabbled much with weaving, macrame yes but weaving no. After some Ojo De Dios or Gods Eyes for The Six Week Boutique a few years ago and having recently worked on a woven furniture project for Inside Out magazine I have become more appreciative and aware of it's possibilities. The image above is my perfect idea of weaving all wrapped up in a super fabulous original 70's wall hanging found on Etsy. Below a wastebin like no other, the Bow Bin below designed by German artist Cordula Kehrer who has them handcrafted by the indigenous Aeta people of the Philippines mixes traditional rattan weaving techniques with sustainability and modern design. Both super impressive examples of why I should get weaving...
