"I see these rugs as the narratives of these people, through an object that was central to their daily lives and that provided immediate domestic comfort and assurance. Each carpet is unique and tells its own story. I have framed the coveted rugs with sheep’s fur as an extension of the woolen yarn used to weave the piece. The long fur can sometimes look wild, bringing into the home elements of wilderness as a counter balance to the static nature of a built-home, as well as the constraints of society." The original, hand woven carpets are made in the tradition of the Romanian Rom women from the last century. The rugs are made up from pieces from the 1920s to the 1970s. Some have minor imperfections that have been restored by expert craftsman. The fur used is a by-product from the food farming industry. The carpets are given more structure with a recycled Vibram backing on the borders.
