Anna María Lind Geirsdóttir from Reykjavik in Iceland uses rags as her colour palette. Taking discarded garments, bedlinen and textiles, she cleans the fabric before cutting off the seams then cuts the material into strips and winds them into a ball. The technique is inspired by a process used by her Finnish grandmother. “I set the warp yarns into the loom and then I start weaving, using the rag strips for the weft.” The process results in ‘rag-rugs’ and wall-hangings in a beautiful array of colours. You can follow more of her amazing textile projects on her blog Weberstrasse!
