Typography Rugs

made by german designer Selma Alaçam. Her project heart strings combines her favourite songs, that even as a child she liked, the height of cool to be covered in brightly-coloured band paraphernali, as she calls it. Maybe you will recognize some lyrics from Depeche Mode or Fiona Apple. The project contains seven woven rugs int he Kelim traditionembroidered with typography verses. Enjoy them!

Ended the course in natural dyeing this week with an exhibition at the student gallery at Stenebyskolan

I have worked with screen printing and dyeing in combination. Trying out different combinations of colour, and how do combine them. I have mostly used blueberries, yellow onion skins and madder.

Brook & Lyn Gradient weaving


By Nava Lubelski, working with the idea of destruction and restoration, tearing and cutting stained areas of a painted canvas then carefully repairing them with embroidery. The web-like structures over the larger holes are beautiful and embellish the repair work in such a precious way, the contrasting colours on the final image really stand out for me too.
