Impressed by these brightly colored woven tapestries created by North Carolina-based textile artist Judit Just. Originally from Barcelona she studied fashion design, sculpture and textile art specializing in weaving and embroidery. She grew up surrounded by textiles and actually learned weaving craftsmanship through her mom when she was little. On Sarah K. Benning blog she says this about dealing with imitators:
“My best strategy is not be afraid and keep working no matter what. I’ve found that if you really want your business to succeed, it’s really important to be unique. Try to offer a very specific kind of product. Do not copy. Study your competition and do the opposite. Be original and believe in your work, no matter what. And try not to get too inspired on someone else’s work. Ultimately, just keep working and creating. Keeping my hands busy is what helps me the most to keep my mind clear and focused.”
