Common Threads Collection Thread No. 2 8x10 from Jan Kath
The Thread 2 From The Common Threads Collection.
The Common Threads Collection has its roots in late 18th and 19th Century necessity. As typically younger women from Scandinavia, Germany, and the Netherlands would learn to mend clothing, more so to extend the life of garments as opposed to stylistic flair, they often created embellishments and patterns within the stitches themselves. Collected Darning Samplers showing the learning of such patterns and mending techniques currently housed in the Museum of International Folk Art in Santa Fe, New Mexico became the inspiration for a series of rugs paying homage to this often under appreciated local craft and regional folk art.
Thread 2 from the Common Threads Collection is a patchwork style rug but does feature an overall symmetry. The color palette used in very light and upbeat, which is accentuated by various materials like wool, Silk, and Nettle and differentiating pile heights.
