Tanvi Kant's Poetic Twist on Things




I have been a big fan of Tanvi Kant's recycled textile accessories for quite some time. Each wearable piece has a vocabulary of its own and seems to demonstrate a free-spirited lesson in thrifty resourcefulness and poetic defiance. If I had had more time to prepare for Urban Fiber Flotsam, I might have spent my evenings in the studio twisting and knotting my flotsam into delicate cords and twine. I know that when I return to the farm near Siena there will be more than enough vine-like overgrowth to inspire my next series of fiber forays.
