Eszter Révész of Dreaming Threads designs and makes handwoven rugs and wall-hangings that combine Hungarian folk motifs with contemporary design and exciting surfaces. The treasure trove of patterns and techniques of Hungarian folk textiles, combined with contemporary colours and a sense of almost sculptural form, are central to her work.
The rugs are made on 4 shafts looms with hand-manipulated weaving techniques. During weaving, Révész creates the pattern by hand with weft floats or loops on the surface of the fabric. These techniques can often be observed in Hungarian folk weaves. Traditionally, the most commonly used was the weft-floating technique, which results in a surface similar to embroidery, and which can produce complex patterns.
