Soft Century x Chloe Cooper Tapestry

Soft Century x Chloe Cooper Tapestry


This collaboration between artist Chloe Cooper and Katherine Entis of Soft Century is a joint effort of weaving and non-traditional embroidery. All weaving and embroidery was hand-done in Portland, OR. The aim was to paint with yarn.

First Katherine wove the "canvas" - a large cream ground with sparse blocks of color and texture. Chloe embroidered pixelated shapes onto this ground, using vibrant wool and mohair, some of which Katherine had hand-dyed. Then, back to Katherine for more embroidery. The result is an organic and textural composition chronicling the dialogue between the two artists. 


Materials: Wool and Mohair

Dimensions: 60" x 68" excluding tassels


Care Instructions: Keep out of direct sunlight to best preserve color. 


Hanging Instructions: Identify a height on your wall that is a half inch below where the top of the piece will hang. Nail a row of tacks or small nails in a line, the full width of the piece. Space these tacks 2" - 3" apart depending on your preference. Gently hang the tapestry from the tacks, a half inch below the top of the fabric. Secure the left and right bottom corners with a single tack each. Leave tassels to hang freely.
