Minimal Arete - Handwoven shawl

Minimal Arete - Handwoven shawl


Handwoven Greek shawl "Arete" with white woven stripes. Its cotton warp is left unwoven at regular intervals giving unexpected shapes when parts of the shawl overlap. It reminds of living creatures such as sea anemones moving in sea water. 

The shawl is inspired from Queen "Arete's" costume, which I designed and wove for the theatrical production "Odyssey" for the Cypria festival in Cyprus. The design is based on drawings from pottery of the 5th century BC depicting the characters of Odyssey. 

The shawl can also be used on dining tables and sofas for decoration.
