Linum is a collection of handwoven wall hangings made of flax and linen in all of their different production steps: From the flax straw that comes right off the fields to the fibers that were retted either on the field or in water, to the heckled flax bundles that are soft and fibrous, to the spun, bleached and died linen yarns.
Each wall hanging combines raw flax fibers' natural imperfect beauty and man-produced linen's industrial perfection. This project surrounds the question of how we can incorporate natural fibers and their traditional look into our industrialized world. It demonstrates a material research as well as a critique on the neglect of a blend between craft and production.
