Marianne Kemp

Posted in fabrics by menno1976 on September 25, 2009

Dutch textile designer Marianne Kemp has developed unique techniques to create the most wonderful textures and contrasts in her work. She is an expert at weaving horsehair which is mainly sourced from Mongolian horses. Manipulating the hair in various ways, such as by knotting, curling and looping it, she creates a fascinating texture, in which she plays with the different qualities of horsehair: shiny and smooth, organic and wild, flexible and stiff.
