Tweed is a fabric that extracts its ingredients and colours from the land it grows on.

This landscape

-A Neatly Manicured Hedge-

is a world within our existing concrete world.

 

Hunters used to wear tweed as camouflage

and

the only two things a sheep needs to grow wool are water and grass.

 

The yarns are blended of colour. Cyan Magenta and Yellow mixed in a equal amount.

 

A tufted carpet is a man made pile fabric.

Grass and fur are nature made pile fabrics.

When one would cut the pile of the carpet,

it would be similar to a shepherd clipping a sheep or a gardener trimming a hedge.

The carpet is made with a mechanical tufting tool,

the tool pushes loops of yarn trough a backing fabric.

Each loop of yarn means one hand movement of the maker.

I liked the idea of this proces because it makes me feel the true creator of my world.

 I like to be the folly builder.
