Sarah Mays-Salin Fine Art Textiles

 

Sarah Mays-Salin's award-winning hand-woven and hand-dyed textiles feature traditional ikat technique contrasted with hi-tech digital Jacquard elements capturing drawn and photographed

Textile designs are sourced from original drawings focusing on the small details of nature; inspirational plants, flowers, produce, animals, and insects. These bits of life suggest patterns, inspire dye technique and woven structures.
