With the help of a big needlework encyclopaedia Lio de Bruin has processed sheets of leather, using old needlework techniques. Her Leather Needlework pieces are made for interiors: rugs and runners to cover seats, the floor, or a table. She has drawn her inspiration from the simplicity and richness of ethnic pieces. Three of her carpets have been executed in life-size. Plumage is a black weave, alternating shiny and matt, with leather feathers
