They're made of found street "fabrics"- plastic bags, hardware cloth, broken umbrella nylon, etc. With the pieces cut and woven together and then stitched. I like the patterning that occurs at the meeting of the various surfaces. It reminds me that here in America we have very few indigenous textile traditions. (I mean from colonists not first nations) Everything "American" is just a mishmash of other cultural traditions. Somehow this feels American to me. I think it's the use of waste materials, leftover from our consumer society. Yeah, that's it.
