pattern spy woven with tassles // smitten studiopattern spy woven with tassles // smitten studioI love it when modern designers and artists breath new life into an age old traditional craft, especially when the result is anything like each of these wondrous woven works of art. The textural pattern from hand woven pieces can make my heart skip a beat and anytime I come across one of Native Vine’s gorgeous wall hangings it really goes all aflutter (I covet every piece). And how about that top and necklace?! I’d say they’re both even frame worthy!
