Day 179

Exif Data: Nikon D5000 ; Lens:  Nikkor AF-S DX 18-55; 34 mm, ISO 900; f/5; 1/30 s.

These are the colors of the Colombian handicrafts; I like how the hand-made things here are so colorful and delicate, you really can notice all the effort made by the artisans to produce such pieces of art.

This is a carpet made with small pieces of rolled cotton fabric jointed with some colorful threads, and as soon as I saw it, I knew it had to be on this blog.

Feel free to leave feedback, critiques or suggestions.




Estos son los colores de las artesanias Colombianas; me gusta mucho como las cosas hechas a mano aca son tan finas y coloridas, se nota todo el esfuerzo y dedicación que los artesanos ponen para producir estas piezas de arte.

Esta es una carpeta hecha con pedazos enrollados de tela de algodón unidos por hilos de colores; y tan pronto la vi, super que tenía que estar en este blog.

Críticas, comentarios y/o sugerencias son bienvenidas.

  1. My father made rugs like this one. His were made on an old Draper loom. Look at this:

    The weaving mechanism on his loom was the same, but the longitudinal “rags” were fed into his machine from huge spools several feet away from the loom. My dad was a “loom fixer” in a cotton mill for years. That’s how he came to know about weaving. I used to have bobbins in shuttles around here, but I don’t know what I did with them now. I don’t have a rug either. I had to help straighten out the yarn from big bundles he bought in bulk. Finally, he hired some families to do that. It was a real pain in the butt! 🙂 He sold thousands of those rag rugs. I laugh when I see them now. I think they are a special kind of ugly. But, then I would, wouldn’t I….after having been required to help make the damn things when I was a kid! 🙂
