Hand woven 2-panel diptych, connected by the warp on which it was woven.
An indigo drawing runs across each panel.
These objects are intended to live two lives.
While connected, as a table runner, a dressing for a bureau, or a drawing to drape across the bed or over the back of a chair. Once separated, the drawing becomes fragmented and the cloth takes on a more intimate relationship with the body and with space. Use it as a hand towel to elevate drying clean dishes or clean hands. Let it be the surface for your favorite rotation of objects, a resting place for a salt cellar and candlestick on your dining table.
Cutting the warp threads is the final, and sacred, act in the weaving process, one of liberty and destruction. This moment is yours to define, be it highly ritualistic or completely spontaneous. Each piece has been hemstitched on all horizontal sides so no additional sewing is required. Cut and use.
Hand woven from 100% organic, naturally colored cotton farmed by Sally Fox of Capay Valley, CA.
Each panel is approximately 16" x 25". A diptych is approximately 52" long.
Wash on the gentle cycle in a front loading washing machine and tumble dry on medium. A firm pressing will return the cotton to its lustrous state.
