The Woven Scrolls are a special ongoing collection of Bulgarian cotton bookmarks woven by my mother – Gergana Daskalova.
They are made using various techniques, including tablet weaving, inkle loom weaving and other traditional belt making techniques, depending on the project. The inspirations behind them are sometimes from traditional motifs, sometimes formed free from the imagination. The works themselves are not traditional but rather my mother’s signature artistry. She is very playful with colors and mixes them in sometimes unorthodox but always exciting ways.
Often the designs are made in collaboration with my father Ivo Daskalov, who carves wooden or silver inlaid ends for the weaves.
The “Stella” collection includes five bookmarks, hand-woven on an inkle loom. The base of the fabric is made of cotton threads in yellow, green and purple. Each bookmark uses a different color of weft, which gives a particular shade. They are finished with cotton threads in a color that corresponds to the color of the weft. Four of the dividers are finished with mahogany openwork decoration on top and one with leather in red and light brown. The embroidery is influenced from the elements of the mahogany decoration .
Dimensions are 26×1.8 cm.
