                                                      TEXTURES FROM NATURE  Texture is all around us; in its natural state or converted into useful products. It's part of the "fabric of our lives". (isn't that a tag line for Cotton?) Here are some textures that caught my attention.

What could be more awe-inspiring than the sweeping vistas of Monument Valley. One of my favorite spots. I love the textures of the red earth and rock faces. My husband took this photo on one of our trips to the Southwest. 

Massive stone columns add weight and interest to this hallway, bringing nature indoors.

Vibrant green hillsides in Japan grow grasses to be woven into window shades. Such wonderful textural rhythm.

These custom  shades are woven on traditional hand looms. Fibers are hand striped, hand tied and cured right in the village near the hills. A real cottage industry. Hartmann & Forbes shades.

Woven iron drum table from Kolkka is a real conversation piece: sculptural yet  functional.

 

The visual image of this truckload of hand dyed yarns  is so inviting  it makes you want to reach out and touch it. Wonderful example of another cottage industry in India: Surya Rugs.
