Introducing Lotta Helleberg {textile art and design}

The simple beauty found in nature is often overlooked. Lotta Helleberg from Charlottesville, Virginia has taken the time to examine her surroundings and create beautiful lasting textile creations. A bold fig leaf was screen printed on the tea towel above. Made from a linen/cotton blend fabric, this towel measures 18"x24" and is priced at only $24. Japanese maple leaves fall along the side of the pillow below. For this creation, real maple leaves were used as printing plates. The pillow measures 16"x12" and comes with your choice of wool or down artisan made insert for $115.

Please visit Lotta's website or her Etsy shop to see more amazing nature inspired creations that are available for purchase. More about Lotta and her printing technique can be found in Touched Creatively's first issue.
