Designed and hooked by Fumiyo Hachisuka, Tokyo, Japan, 2008.
Featured in: Celebration XX
Fumiyo Hachisuka finds that hooked rugs based on her travels around the world are an excellent way to commemorate trips. The beautiful countryside and half-timbered homes of Stratford-upon-Avon, England, piqued her imagination, so she decided to create a hooked rug of Anne Hathaway's cottage.
Fumiyo started the design process by taking pictures and drawing sketches during her visit. Because her trip was in October, the images were rather stark and devoid of color. She used her artistic imagination to add the flowers and a full garden to bring color and balance to the rug.
