Swedish Textile Exhibition in Paris by Patsy Kolesar

I spent three days in Paris in April meandering through little streets and stumbling upon little gems like the Swedish Institute.  We saw a sign with a picture of some highly patterned textiles and it drew us further in to this quaint little courtyard where we had a beer and some lunch at the Swedish cafe and then went into the gallery space to see the exhibit.  It was an exhibit of rag rugs - beautiful, colourful, contemporary rag rugs.  

Re Rag Rug - An exhibition of 12 rugs made entirely from waste and excess fabric from the textile industry by Studio Brieditis & Evans.  They spent 12 months making the rugs using 12 different textile techniques.  To learn more about their amazing work and this exhibition please visit their website here
