helen amy murray

Helen Murrays fabric manipulation draws inspiration from nature, city life and architecture. I love the way her textiles resemble carvings made out of fabric. Her furniture pieces are absolutely stunning and can be seen on her site.

the loom

Sololá is an amazing collaboration between three former RISD students. The collection celebrates the textiles artistry created by Guatemalan weavers. These purse are created on a backstrap loom and turned inside out to expose a burst of color and handwork. Being a lover of embroidery and textile, I am always intrigued by the underside of fiber work. Absolutely gorgeous!!! Make sure you take a look in the Grain Shop before they are all snatched up!!
