City Life a carpet by Wendy Bertrand

All my carpets have names. City Life was named about a forth of the way into the weaving when I became aware that weaving in San Francisco felt differently from weaving in my Gasquet Studio in rural Del Norte County. The lengths of time I found to weave were shorter, time and thoughts seemed more complex, intellectual, and fragmented.

This book shows the growth of the carpet and a few of the earlier carpets. Many of the yarns are natural dyed and about 65% of the yarns are hand spun. The rug is 62 inches by 40 inches. City Life is the first of a series of four carpets called Paying Attention inspired from the lectures of Belgium Philosopher Isabelle Stenger.
