the flax ottoman is part of the flaxproject by christien meindertsma

It consists of different objects, based on the contemporary handwriting of meindertsma in perfect harmony with the traditional Dutch 16th century cordage industry. By analysing the history of this craft, she has reduced the ropery to the original Dutch material: flax. Using the flax from a Dutch farmhouse, the filaments are spun in flax yarns, after which these are twisted into strands. The fresh and innovative approach of meindertsma to the very old techniques as spinning, weaving, twining and splitting has resulted in an astonishing collection of different objects. In conjunction with Zuiderzeemuseum Enkhuizen.
