Blue Vase and Roses Linen Rug Hooking sewn onto tote bag; 10 x 10″

Image Description:

Three Houses Landscape

The image displays a detailed view of a textile, most likely a rug, featuring a variety of vibrant colours and a textured, looped yarn technique known as “hooking.” This technique involves pulling loops of yarn or fabric through a stiff woven base such as burlap, linen, or rug warp. The multitude of colors range from deep blues and reds to bright oranges, pinks, and purples, with some sections in more neutral tones like white, beige, and brown. The loops vary slightly in size and height, giving the surface a rich, tactile quality. The arrangement of colors appears to be somewhat random, contributing to a patchwork effect that is pleasing to the eye. It’s a handcrafted piece that exudes warmth and is often used for home decor due to its aesthetic appeal and craftsmanship.

Blue Vases and Roses

This image shows a tote bag with a colorful, textured front panel. The panel appears to be handcrafted with a latch hook technique, which involves hooking yarn through a grid canvas to create a plush, carpet-like surface. The design on the panel features a mix of vibrant colors. There are patches of blue, red, brown, yellow, and white yarns, creating an abstract pattern. The red sections resemble flowers, while the blue could be interpreted as either sky or water. The bottom section has earthy tones that suggest a ground or landscape. The texture of the yarn gives the artwork a three-dimensional feel, and the varying lengths and thicknesses of the yarn add to the tactile quality of the piece. The bag has a natural color, with a bold red border providing a frame for the artwork, and it has a sturdy handle attached at the top for carrying.
