Hand Knots, Painted and Stitched

Here's a clever way to pull two pieces of fabric together in an open sort of seam. I see the salvaged brocades and velvets from Hurricane Ike flood waters mixed with metallic yarns and ribbons.

Here's some commentary from Style Bubble on this image: "This one here, between Dr Noki and Chloe sounds even more unlikely on paper. If you're not familiar with

For Chloe's A/W 11-12 collection, Dr Noki took sustainable yarn created from disused/unwanted vintage fabrics and stitched it into a poncho, onto some of the bags and also onto forest green jumper..."
The images below contain work by Hildur, also shown at the Reykjavik Fashion Festival. Thank you, Style Bubble for showing me this work. Love to do my own take. To the studio as soon as summer comes.IMG_9254
