Madder facecloth: gold and tan

180 SEK

A luxurious handwoven cloth for your face and body. The linen warp is dyed with madder, which gives it a luminous pink hue, and the weft is a cotton and linen blend in one or two colors. The colorway is in the title and can be seen in the second photo.

The hem is finished by hand and features a small loop to hang it within easy reach.

It measures 28 x 21 cm (11 x 8.25 in). It will crimp slightly and soften after the first use, seen in the last photo.

It can be washed in the washing machine at 40 degrees C/warm cycle.

American weaver in Sweden with an interest in the technical aspects of the craft.

Most of my current work falls under the concept of a "wholly handwoven household" [helhandvävt hushåll]. These are workhorse textiles, brukstextilier, meant to not only be used but to be dirtied or used until threadbare: dishrags, aprons, bathmats. They are objects most of us switched out for machine-woven long ago.

I want both the object and the process to be freed from their preciousness.

Grounded in the idea that using handmade textiles is the best way to show respect to both the work and the craftswoman, the Wholly Handwoven Household is a collection of handwoven, luxurious objects made to be sullied and worn.

I am a founding member of Studio Supersju, an ateljé established in 2016. We are seven weavers devoted to the future of weaving in Sweden.
