Tufted Art Reimagines Rugs as Colorfully Feroucious Tigers
I didn’t intend to take such a long break from writing here… but here we are, and now I’m back! Today I’m sharing the work of Ina G. Dyreborg, a textile artist who creates giant tufted rugs that are packed with personality. My favorite pieces revolve around her human and animal characters with their bright hues as well as distinct features and expressions.
“I started my carpet journey in 2013 when I wanted a rug but couldn’t find anything that was right for me, and after a long search the idea of creating it myself began to manifest itself,” she writes on her website. “Then I started looking for ways to make rugs and it was the Danella needle, a small handheld tool, that helped start my journey as a textile artist.” Continuing, “For me, it was important from the start that the rugs should be more than a carpet, it should inspire and make you want to explore the tactile.”
Ina sells her work on her website. Follow her on Instagram to see what she’s up to next.
