Back in 2014 textile designers Helle Gråbæk and Maria Kirk Mikkelsen collaborated on a project to ‘Salute the Sketch’. These incomplete weavings, like a sketch, are unfinished, displaying the raw edges of work in progress. ‘We love colour and texture. Out with all the rules and the opinions of others and in with spots of colour. Bring on the distortion. Our textile training has taught us a love of pattern. Anni Albers and Gunta Stolzl. Our history, our passion. Vertical, horizontal, organic, geometric, contextual and contrasting.’ See more from the designers here.
