A look behind the scene :
Petra Marciniak is a modern weaver, who lives and works in Annecy, France.
I have been weaving, in some form or another, for the past six years. After spending several years working slowly on a Rigid Heddle Loom using my own handspun yarns, I slowly progressed into classical weaving. Today, I create unique, handwoven textiles for the home and office, namely rugs, cushions, wall hangings and lampshades.
I believe that interior textiles play a major role in creating a sense of comfort and serenity in a home. They contribute a tactile element, bringing texture and warmth to any room, something that no other type of artwork can offer.
My work is inspired by traditional Scandinavian and Japanese weaving, combined with a modern, minimal color palette. I use only high-quality natural fibers in order to create lasting heirloom pieces.
