tea cloth trio

Carl Stewart

tea cloth 03. This cloth was woven using cotton (hand-dyed with red tea) and recycled tea strings. 

"Over the last five years, with the help of family, friends, colleagues, and acquaintances, I have collected thousands of tea strings, the short pieces of cotton string from tea bags. The individual strings are tied together and used to weave the cloth."

Each knot on the surface of these cloths represents a single tea string.
