This wall tapestry was made with an assortment of secondhand yarns, sourced from the local recycling center. It has a linen base fabric, which used to be a pair of secondhand curtains. The yarn used for the fringe was harvested from a secondhand crocheted poncho and the wooden stick used for hanging the tapestry is made from a fallen branch collected from Helsinki's urban landscape.
The main technique used to create this fluffy and carpet-y wall tapestry is punch needle. Little loops are created using a special needle on a roughly woven base fabric. Even though this technique is faster than traditional embroidery, many stitches are necessary to create a dense carpet texture. Finally, the fringe was sewn into the tapestry during the finishing process. The wooden stick sits in a little tunnel at the upper end of the tapestry and can be replaced, if needed.
The geometric shapes and interesting textures of this punch needle wall tapestry make for a great and cozy accent to any room. Adding textile art works to your walls can also help with echo, especially in those super minimalistic interiors.
