Studio Ira Bekker
Well known mosaic artist, Ira Bekker, has found a new medium in which she is creating exquisite fabric products. ECO-PRINTING and ECO-DYEING are beautiful, alchemical processes in which plant materials and metals are combined with natural fibers to produce results that are beautifully organic yet totally sophisticated. She transforms new fabrics like cotton, linen and hemp or recycled fabrics like bed linen from the hospitality industry into something reminiscent of the fallen leaves on a forest path or the play of light and shadow between trees and the sky. The resulting fabrics are then made up into cushions, tableware (table cloths, serviettes, placemats) wall hangings, room dividers and accessories like scarves and bags. She also uses natural plant dyes made from Bluegum, Onion leaves, Bottle brush, Tumeric, Khakibos, Peppertree and rusted iron to dye or dip-dye fabrics to compliment the Eco-printed range.
All products aside from her Inspire, Nurture, Create range are custom made for retail spaces, lodges, hotels and private use.
