Macrame Wall Art by Belen Senra
Every year we move to a new country (well sometimes even 2-3 countries :) to develop our new collections inspired by their culture and local people.
Theses adventures have a strong influence in the syle of every single piece and I´m so happy that our last Bali collection reflects exactly the lifestyle in this magic island.
Beach, sand, surf, sun, spirituality...are the key of this new Textile Art.
Hope you enjoy as much as I did, designing it, making it, styling it and shipping it :)
These days I´m working in an exciting new collection with a new comtemporany touch. I make also the styling and art direction of the following photos.
I hope you enjoy it.
Last month I´ve been working on some new projects with natural dyes here in North Thailand.
These are the pictures where you can see the tonos of colors we can get from NATURE!! and also the name of each in case you want to try at home. There are some sites online selling it for those like me that don´t have an amazing garden full of diversity :)
Pictures taken during my staying at Naenna Studio in Chiang Mai, a great place to share and learn about Thai textile if you have the chance to visit this North area.
I´ve been traveling all around Thailand for about 4 months already and creating what I called Thai Garden Collection, pieces combined with regional textile from different tribes in the North of the country. Thailand is a country where I was before and really love the way of life, this was one of the reasons of coming to develop new collections although some other Asian countries are in the route!
Here I share some pictures of the macrame wallhangings I just finished and really look gorgeous even more when we contribute with the local economies.
Just arrived from Vietnam and the experience with Hmong tribe was so warm, having lunch in their houses and leraning different techniques as beewax, batik, indigo dyeing and how to shine it with stones.....Everything just at the border with China, I also had the chance to adquire exclusive pieces as a metal necklace that they wear since they are kids and a vintage kimono from "Red Head tribe" which will become into a new collection soon as they are all super inspiring pieces!
In the pictures, Indigo plants, typical backpack basket that they use to carry their stuff, typical textile and vintage belts, and the Master woman who teach me all the techniques!
Last month I just worked colaborating together with Paris Berlin Bodas for a beautiful shooting with macrame as the main deco and copper details with pink! These images were shared with www.inspiredbythis.com making a beautiful featuring.
A sophisticated and decilated wedding with a chic touch! Definitelly wedding and macrame match perfect!
After several months working on the design together with Rocio Olmo we finally launched our new capsule collection of these amazing Flag Tapestries, you can bring the wild outdoors inside with these wall throws, printed with large scale artwork. Made from mix cotton, this is ideal for transforming beds, walls or sofas into something spectacular.
Inspired by what we love in life Rocio and me share the same vision for product and Interior Design (our background), we love beach lifestyle and fill our world with color and these is what you´ll find on our productions together!
Available at my shop online!
These days I´m working on a small production of candle holders I fall in love when I see the light of a candle hanging from the ceiling it really creates a special atmosphere!
Here I share two diffetent styles... adding color or just black!
This week I just received a commissioned piece using peach, silver and blue-grey as a palette color. I must say I´m always so excited about the result! I love the piece natural but when I follow clients instuctions there is always a love feeling inside! The feeling of making the perfect #macrame wallhanging for the client! and the feeling of making a piece that will become classic!
Working on some bags prototipes using same rope as in wall hangings! The idea born after being invited to participate in the Festivalet the biggest craft fair in Barcelona where people go to buy presents for Xmas....so I just decided to produce more atractive and small pieces, and just pop into my mind some accessories made with the rope and even with left overs.
I love making new product and not only tapestry as I´m a person with design background. Macramé became a part of me but I´m sure I´ll be trying some new techniques and not only textile as I love furniture, working with wood, ceramic .... I can say "the best is yet to come" :)
These days are being super busy with a lot of projects in progress.... Working on new and vibrant items, from accesories to OFK wall hangings like the one below!
I´ll be launching the new online sotre with all my new goddies by the end of november!
This week I´m working on some new pieces inspired by my indigenous experience in Panama adapted to a trendy and modern design.
The collection will include some pieces with different rods, the first one I just finished is the arrow, I include bright colors and more neutral #macrame wallhangings. There will be also different sizes ideally for a exciting focal in any space and for sure for our kids! as it will fit perfect and will work letting the flow the energy and creativity of our loved ones!
Here you have some images of the procces, I will include soon another exciting rod I´m just finishing with the picture of where the inspiration come from.
