Tapestry Crochet Patchwork Rug — Mosaic of Memories

Mosaic of memories… There is something nostalgic about the times that have passed. Things, patterns, sounds and scents occasionally revive our memories in an instant. Somehow when I crocheted this rug I was thinking of my Grandma, of her flowered summer dresses, checkered table clothes, her autumn coat in hounds tooth pattern. Can you find your memories in these patterns?

The size of the rug 146cm/57in x 55cm/21in allows you to use it in multiple ways. It can be laid on a chair or on a sofa to add a dab of texture and color to your interior. You can use it as a stole. It is made mostly of cotton and is soft and pleasant to skin. It can also be used as a wrap overskirt, a silver or gold plated kilt needle is supplied with each rug. The Mosaic of Memories can also be hung on a wall as a piece of textile art.

Unlike the knitted jacquards the crocheted jacquard does not have stranding on the left side of the fabric. Both sides look almost the same.
If you wish to have the mosaic rug hanged on the wall, please let me know in the message to seller when purchasing — I will supply the hardware for hanging.

All items in this shop are my original design and made entirely and exclusively by me.

A small sachet with dried lavender (organically grown in my garden) will accompany the rug. Please let me know if you do not like lavender.

Please bear in mind, that even though I try to keep the tones on the photos as close to the original as it is possible — they still might differ a bit from real life due to monitor settings etc.

Tija lives in Latvia and says:

“Seeing colours, feeling textures, painting with fiber — all that makes me feel alive. Tapestry crochet has become my passion. Within it, I can unite all forms of creativity I have loved and learned since my childhood. After graduating from art school, where I learned academic painting and drawing, I studied textile arts. And now I paint my wearable tapestries using the crochet hook as a brush and all kinds of fibers, yarns and threads. -Tija”
