Catarina Riccabona & Hand-weavers Around The World
"I sometimes think of the similarities in terms of approach that must exist among hand weavers and that I share with at least some of these anonymous creators through the practice of weaving. For instance, I am sure that I am not the first weaver to feel a strong connection to the materials I use, to the point that I feel precious about off-cuts. I'd like to think that this is how tassels and similar embellishments were born - out of a desire to find additional purpose for materials that, even though no longer useful in the strictest sense, are too valuable to be discarded."
