brook & lyn.
One of my many loves as a textile junkie are woven wall hangings - there is something so simple and humble about them, yet the possibilities for creativity are endless. Within the parameters of a few inches of yarn, any manner of color combinations, patterns, and texture changes can be made. I find these weavings by Brook & Lyn, the work of partners Mimi Jung and Brian Hurewitz, to be particularly stunning, hung delicately on copper rods and incorporating areas of heavy fringe. They make me miss my days on the loom! I would love to have some of these hanging in my apartment, but with two fiesty cats it would be more likely to end up as the world's largest yarnball on the floor. See more from Brook & Lyn here.
