Heddle and Needle
Heddle & Needle is a collection of woven tapestries and jewelry lovingly handmade by Rachel Gottesman in Brooklyn. She also enjoys painting, collecting plants, and her cat Miles. When she would see the handwoven tapestries that were being posted online, she thought they were both beautiful and within her abilities to create herself, so she started experimenting. The floor loom class she took at the Brooklyn Textile Arts Center last winter cemented her love for weaving and kicked her work into overdrive. Heavily influenced by her past work as a painter/illustrator, she brings her sense of color and composition to her weavings.
