Borders Pillow - Walnut
Description
Borders stems from Hella Jongerius' interest in the traditional backstrap weaving of Guatemala and Mexico, in which the loom is tethered between the weaver's body and a tree or post. Because backstrap weaving produces a narrow cloth, two or more pieces are often hand embroidered together using a heavy decorative stitch.

Borders is an industrial translation of this localized craft technique. The embroidered lines that traverse Borders' surface are archetypal motifs culled from different genres, including a botanical, a dotted line, and pied de poule, forming an irregular grid of unique compositions.

Large open areas in the design called for a ground cloth with some surface interest. Heathered yarns add texture throughout a dry, toothy wool canvas. The four wool ground colors provide a neutral base for the embroidered expression of Jongerius' unique color sensibility. The designer and manufacturer have work represented in the MoMA collection. Made in the USA. Dry-clean only. 17h x 17w x 5"d.
