Braided Yarn - Not Knitted

Lately I've written a few posts on great, trendy knits to ware or to decorate your home. I find artist and fashion designer Dana Barnes' work, as something along that line too. These pictures are from her New York exhibition last year called Unspun - Tangled and Fused. To walk on a carpet like this, must be like walking on clouds! 
Dana Barnes experiments with unspun natural fibers and innovative felting processes. 

Barnes uses techniques like knotting, netting, twisting and looping to create large scale textiles for interior spaces. See more pictures from the creative process here.
