The recent years saw a sudden upsurge of textile-related art and craft practices — embroidery, knitting, and in the case of Wild Knots, knot-making and weaving. It may or may not have a direct correlation with our collective woke-ness but it’s interesting how pliable materials like threads, ropes, and yarns come together through tension to reinforce and lend strength to each strand. Sounds like a revolution, doesn’t it?

These thoughts aside, these knot-works by Gerry Mander, the master knotter behind Wild Knots, make for interesting pieces to have — whether it’s on your wall, your head, your neck, or your keys!
