Common Threads Collection Volante No. 1 from Jan Kath
Folk Art and handicraft meet high style in the Common Threads Collection from Jan Kath.
The Common Threads Collection has its roots in late 18th and 19th Century necessity. As typically younger women form 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.
