The San Diego-based designer uses calligraphy to inspire her hand crafted weavings and rope work. Some of her pieces can be found at Urban Outfitters where she was featured in their blog.

Ruby Berry is a Canberra-based textile artist who uses natural materials and traditional
processes to create sculptural textile works. She says this about her practice on an interview with Lip Magazine:
“My practice is about exploring how I can bring traditional textile materials and processes into the contemporary art world. My making revolves around traditional techniques, hand spinning and weaving, and transforming these techniques into sculptural art forms. I have recently begun experimenting with sensory work, exploring sight, smell and touch to create interactive and engaging spaces. My recent work looks at how I could evoke a sense of protection and comfort through textile associations and sensory engagement.”
You can find Ruby Berry on Facebook and follow her blog on Tumblr.
