I am busy these days cutting rags. I have cut all the green garments I have found so far in my studio and I am waiting to receive more green . The rag rug weaving is as you can see not just about weaving it is also the collecting. That makes it harder but more fun and sustainable. I just read an interesting post by Pamela Nguyen called: The environmental costs of a T-shirt (infographic) .You can open the link and read the stuff, it is an eye opener. It makes me more proud of the path I have chosen to use for my art and it is totally in line with the exhibition Bómullartuskur-Cotton Rags that I threw in Jan-Feb this year. I am glad I am not an island in what I preach ;)
I have been cutting garments and I want to show you a picture of the balls of rags I have made this week. Mostly green but one white-orangy.
