Contemporary textile design

Embroidery by Mrx Stitch

The amount of contemporary textile design on Pinterest is just amazing. There is a whole new world out there of embroidery, knitting, quilting and even macramé. From realistic to abstract it’s all there.

Today I like to show you a few of my favorites on my Pinterest board: Textile art and fabrics

When we say macrame what comes to mind are pathetic looking plant hangers from the seventies. However … to my surprise, I see more and more contemporary macramé work. Especially in the form of beautiful tapestries. This ancient traditional technique of knotting and splitting rope, is back.
