Africa | Woman's wrapper ~ adire ~ from the Yoruba people of Nigeria | ca. 1970 | Cotton; stencil resist indigo dyed
Adire is the name given to indigo dyed cloth produced by Yoruba women of south western Nigeria using a variety of resist dye techniques. Adire translates as tie and dye, and the earliest cloths were probably simple tied designs on locally-woven hand-spun cotton cloth much like those still produced in Mali. In the early decades of the twentieth century however new techniques of resist dyeing were developed, most notably the practice of hand-painting designs on the cloth with a cassava starch past African Textiles, Adire Clothing, Clothing Yoruba, African Fabrics, Design, African History, Dyes, Ties Dyed Clothing, Adire Ties Dyed

Wooden Textiles by Elisa Strozyk "Wooden Textiles" convey a new tactile experience. We are used to experience wood as a hard material; we know the feeling of walking across wooden floors, to touch a wooden tabletop or to feel the bark of a tree. But we usually don't experience a wooden surface which can be manipulated by touch. Elisa Strozyk, Pattern, Textiles Art, Wooden Textiles, Art Installations, Blankets, Wooden Art, Rugs, Design

Palace Yurt by fiber artist Janice Arnold. She used the technique of felting wool fibers through sheer drapey silk fabrics for a translucent ethereal result. This technique is sometimes referred to as nuno felting. I would like to live in a Yurt, and I would like it too look like this.
