How often do you hear about weaving, right? Not enough, if I dare say so!
I have loved weaving for a few years now (I even bought a table loom that I never truly got around to play with yet…), and this skill impressed me a lot. For the patience it requires (woah!) as well as the skill when you think about pattern making.
Plus, let’s state the unfortunate truth: the ratio of time and craftsmanship it takes to weave VS the amount most people will pay for weaving is pretty much down the gutter, along with other skills like knitting and pottery. Sigh!
That said, Galinanova‘s work (she’s been working in collaboration with artisans from Sardinia (an autonomous region of Italy), which has a very rich and historic weaving tradition) is absolutely blowing my mind, and it’s SO WORTH THE LOOK.
Gives me shivers. So so so so so wonderful and beautiful!
