The Art of Fibers

We appreciate fine craftsmanship wherever it appears, and the fiber arts feature some of the most amazing work you’ll ever see. Weaving began as a functional necessity, whether for clothing or baskets. It’s amazing to think of the problem-solving skills early humans employed to create these complex yet practical items. Now many of these pieces will be displayed as fine art, never to be be worn or carried.
But we love looking at them nonetheless. Here’s a great collection of basket art on Pinterest. And here’s a collection of textile art. Whether you crave any of these pieces or not, they’re sure to spark inspiration for your next home design project.
