- story by MaterialDistrict

Loops textile designed by Marianne Kemp is made from horsehair weaving; a combination of orange, grey, black and red horsehair in a natural plain weave of linen. The weaving process of Loops manipulates the bunches of hair through a special looping process. The horsehair is sourced from live horses overseas, mainly from the Far East, Mongolia.

Marianne Kemp is fascinated by the movement of the weavings, how the horsehair manifest in the net of the weaving technique. Also the way the light falls on the weaving, plays an important role in the process to the final product. Each piece of work has it ’s own unique character through the use of colours, patterns and techniques. She creates exclusive fabrics in divers colours and surface textures.
