iro rug

This is a process video of how I made my Iro rug. It was fully handmade and took around 4 months to complete. The purpose of this rug is to incorporate information and aesthetic together, to make something both visually pleasing and practical. The concept is to have this rug in your home and look at it each day and in doing so you will gradually become able to understand it, having unconsciously learnt the words from seeing it so often. I chose Hiragana because it is usually the first alphabet you learn. Moreover, I like the rounded shapes and feel that they suit the form of a rug.
