Learning about embroidery – GAN’s incredible craft and strength – Raw-Edges found themselves drawn to the aesthetics on its reverse side. The ‘back stitch’ has an unintentional hidden beauty to it, that one might so easily miss. Their aim was to understand the language of this ‘random’ backstitch and develop it into their rug collection. Focusing on colour combinations, the rhythm of patterns, the thickness of the yarns, tactility and craftmanship, they also emphasise handmade work over work on the loom and the handmade embroideries.
