A little preview of the next shop update...

Part three of my favorite textiles is one that I have actually seen irl several times as it is kept at the Nordic museum in Stockholm. I did the larger part of my textile studies at a school located close to the museum and since they have a great textile archive me and my classmates were often there.
This is an old cushion from somewere around 1800, done in flemish weaving, it’s from the region Skåne in southern Sweden were this technique was popular. These large pillows were most often used in the horse wagons or placed on benches inside the houses. I have no deeper analysis or motivation to this being close to my heart other then that it always puts me in a good mood. There is something so stange and endearing about the expression of this technique as everything becomes so sharp and spiky, including hands, feet and hair, I don’t know if psychedelic folk art is a thing but I would almost place it in that genre. (The pictures are from the auction site Bukowskis where the museum purchased the piece from.)

Part two of my favorite textiles is surrealist darling Méret Oppenheims vein gloves. Not too suprisingly these were created in collaboration with the Elsa Schiaparelli house. Using goatskin suede, Oppenheim screen printed and embroidered thin red veins onto gloves, turning the body inside out and thereby challenging the very nature of a glove’s purpose to cover and protect.
She did alot of gloves but these stand out for me because of the fragileness. I love anatomy and veins especially as they, to me, look like an internal organized chaos of threads.
