GRADIENT Series 2021
For her limited series of blankets, Emma Terweduwe threads new life into artisanal crafts of the past, combining her sensibility for strikingly contemporary graphic designs with the traditional process of jacquard weaving. In collaboration with B & T Textilia – a high-end local weaving company – Terweduwe presents two plaid blankets woven in wool, mohair, and cotton, each uniquely finished by hand.
Using natural materials, like wool and cotton, with subtle yet expressive properties, her woven works reveal an organic and tactile feeling, brought into the present by bold graphic patterns.
Hand-finished with a crochet technique, she adds further playful details in colour and texture, underlining the unique quality of each piece. With different designs on either side of each blanket, these pieces can be repositioned, redisplayed and enjoyed again from new perspectives at their owners’ discretion.
