My last assignment for school, fittingly, involves a woven mat. I used fabric scraps that have significance, such as Oma’s scarf, leftovers from clothes made by Mom when I was young, Senegalese batik from Esther, etc to tell the story of my ecological identity. I’ve seperated the fabric strips rather than blending them while weaving so that they can be recognized each time I step on the mat, which now sits at the threshold of our front door. A perfect fit.
