Dream Weaver: The '70s Art Trend That's Making a Comeback

Feb 25 2014 - 6:04am

Is weaving the new knitting? Artist Cathy Callahan [1] seems to think so, and with the trend of wall weavings on the rise, we can't help but agree. After spotting them at the Dwell on Design trade show [2] in June, we saw them later that month in One Kings Lane's [3] first-ever Artisanal Sale, which featured three wall-weaving artists. Coincidence? Nope, more like a trend. To get you up to speed on the emerging movement, we rounded up some of our favorite weaving artists, secret sources, and even a DIY [4] hack!

All Roads [5], one of the weaving artists featured in the One Kings Lane sale, has a variety of chunky versions hung by arrows.

Much more textural and dimensional than traditional art, weavings are a great way to add color to a space. We're loving these colorblocked beauties from Brook&Lyn [6].


Native Line [7] is one of our favorite sources for neutral options that tend to be longer and thinner. Check out their cool use of metallic wire and fibers [8]!

While these weavings can creep into the high hundreds (even thousands), we've noticed some adorable options from Etsy for under $100, like this version with fringe and tassels [9]. If you're feeling really adventurous though, try your hand at making your own. Creativebug [10] hung strands of colorful yarn from a dowel, cutting them at different lengths to achieve a similar effect. Check out their yarn banner DIY [11] for a step-by-step breakdown!
