The Union of Striped Yarns by Dienke Dekker

The Union of Striped Yarns

Dienke Dekker’s project focuses on striped yarns and the places these intersect in a weave. The different combinations and weaves have resulted in complex repetitions and sequences, giving textural depth, evoking seemingly random overall effects and intriguing colour patterns. Dienke has used three different techniques, ranging from industrial weaves with hand-dyed yarns to hand-weaves with industrially printed yarns and simple weaves based on two twined ropes, to create a range of outspoken textiles fit for different products.
