WEAVER: Jessica Ouano
This textile wall hanging is inspired by exotic tropical flowers found in the Philippines. The pattern on the weave is meant to represent gradient flower petals and the beads are meant to represent tiny dewdrops. The textile is made out of upcycled materials such as a deadstock polyester sewing thread sourced from a local clothing factory and handwoven abaca pinangabol scrap fabric that was taken apart and rewoven into this textile. The textile wall hanging comes with metal hooks attached to the back of the wood.
