LEATHER NEEDLEWORK

Leather handmade carpets.
With the help of a big needlework encyclopedia I processed sheets of leather, using old needlework techniques.
The Leather Needlework pieces are made for interiors: rugs and runners to cover seats, the floor, or a table.
 
I’ve drawn my inspiration from the simplicity and richness of ethnic pieces. Three of the carpets have been executed in life-size. Plumage is a black weave, alternating shiny and matt, with leather feathers growing out. The carpet
with the frivolous, brightly coloured fringes and a black canvas is called the Fringes and finally, there is the Colour Block: a large surface covered with wide, short loops, where two intense colours meet.
