Lancaster, Pennsylvania-based textile designer Beckie Hynes blends her passion for weaving with her love of recycling by creating woven goods from salvaged t-shirts. She slices the shirts into a continuous strip and then weaves the t-shirt “yarn” on her upright tapestry loom. This is the same exact loom on which she learned to weave in 1998. She then sews that fabric into pillows, purses, rugs, or mounts it to be hung on a wall.
Beckie’s experience as a commercial textile colorist, textile designer, and wallpaper stylist has fashioned her unique sense of color play.
