I met Petra Green by Instagram, and after a swap of goods, she suggested the possibility of making a collaboration together. After some mails I was threading my loom again with hand dyed painted wool yarn. I had sworn not to weave “ummus” fabric again. But I caught her enthusiasm with the idea of making rounded cushions. I sent the fabric to London and some months after, voilà! They are beautifully well done.

Don’t forget to visit her online shop here.

Fabric commissioned

/ / /

I’ve received a commission few weeks ago from a londoner designer. This handwoven fabric is hand painted before weaving. So I’ve dyed the threads with a brush little by little, changing the colours, and then, in the loom, I’ve woven it with a black weft. 100% wool.

Last week Neukölln  opened the door with some of my weaving tapestries hanging from its walls. Neukölln is a second hand furniture shop located in Barcelona, with a very selected collection of antiquities and new stuff. If you’re in Barcelona, don’t hesitate to take a look.

New collection -almost- ready

The latest collection has taken a while to get, like the cold in Barcelona. But it is almost ready, so I will slowly rise to the online store new products. Hope you like them.

La darrera col·lecció ha trigat una mica a arribar, igual que el fred a Barcelona. Però ja gairebé està a punt, així que poc a poc aniré pujant a la botiga online els nous productes. Espero que us agradin.

Time is going very fast and meanwhile we can see Christmas the horizon, in Barcelona  we still in shorts.
The first image is an exercise in texture I made , and the next two are a preview of the new collection I’m working on.

El temps està passant molt ràpid i mentre podem veure Nadal a l’hortizó, aquí a Barcelona encara portem pantalons curts. La primera imatge és un exercici de textura que vaig fer, i les dos següents són un avançamennt de la colecció nova en que estic treballant.

 

 

 

 

Weave to sew

proces

For two weeks the loom has been occupied for this long piece. 9 meters of squares and spontaneous lines, mixing black wool and greenish-pearl linen. Now that is has been washed it’s time for next steps, cut and sew. / Durant dues setmanes el teler ha estat ocupat per aquesta peça tan llarga. 9 metres de quadrats i línies espontànies, barrejant llana en negre i lli verdós-perlat. Ara que ja l’he rentat toca pensar en els següent passos; tallar i cosir.

/ / /  I love to crochet and I’ve thought what if I mix crochet and handwoven? Nothing too significant, just wanted to try it with a few pieces. The process interesting and the result has been called for someone “a little socky” (from sock)

M’agrada molt el ganxet i fa poc se’m va ocórrer barrejar-lo amb el teixit del teler. Res substancial, només probar-ho amb poques peces. El procés  interessant i el resultat algú l’ha anomenat “una mica mitjonet”
