Inspired by the unexpected coalescence of diverse flora and earth matter throughout the plant kingdom, the collaboration explores the evolution of living form as it transpires through time and seasons. Each tapestry in the collection represents a distinct garden landscape in homage to the quadrilateral garden layout of Charbagh. A love song to nature’s harmony, the collection captures the extraordinary beauty of the landscape and its ever-changing kaleidoscope during sunrise, sunset, and the seasons.
Using carefully sourced Merino wool from humanely raised sheep from Oregon and the Falkland Islands, Giefer employs a series of traditional agitation techniques, layering and sculpting the wool fibers together over a span of hours or days depending on the desired design’s intricacy. When repeated over and over this alchemical process causes the wool fibers to lock together to form the fabric known as felt. Creating the growth like texture of the tapestries involves a combination of needle felting and raw wool sculpting, to create a series of layers.
A beautiful statement piece that is all at once organic and refined, the collection captures the warmth of the natural world to bring the essence of Charbagh alive. We are delighted to have collaborated with Taiana Giefer to bring these alchemical pieces to life and into your world at home.
