Kasia Urban Rybska, Poland
Kasia is a textile and decor designer who expresses her love for the needlepoint technique. Lines, pure form, minimalism – are what inspires her the most.
“In my work I combine the traditional technique of needlepoint with a modern design. I really enjoy the old-style precision of needlepoint - an old embroidery technique developed in Europe since the Middle Ages involving laborious, patient and precise covering of canvas with stitches by hand. Enhanced by contemporary, unusual and surprising subjects, patterns and color combinations for this old technique I also like the challenge and satisfaction of bringing to life my creations using nothing but a needle, yarn and fabrics – and my two hands.”
