In addition to wool, for the "Rivers" series, the remnants of fabrics from the production of UNIKA, torn into ribbons, were used. The story with ribbons is not new for Helen Loom: once Elena already worked on this principle - she even had a collection of bags made from torn ribbons. The fabric became the starting point for a new project: from its texture and color, Elena pushed off to try to do something new. She revisited the fastening and the edge itself, moving away from the fringe and concentrating on texture and color.
Tapestries from the "Rivers" collection are distinguished by their complex texture and details that are interesting to consider. In weaving, decorative elements are often used - beads, ceramics, thick ropes. In this work by Helen Loom, in addition to fabrics, a thick rope is used for the first time. Cords are a separate element that Elena carefully chose to achieve the effect of naturalness, softness and negligence at the same time.
