Weaving threads with love

  • • The first object Tijana made was a macramé tapestry
  • • Weaving connects her with her people and heritage
  • • She considers craftspeople – and those who buy from them – heroes

Drawn to macramé, Tijana Hojan Vukić was compelled to discover her own talent. This self-taught craftswoman from Vojvodina wanted to buy a tapestry for herself, and when she didn’t find one – she decided to make it herself. That’s how her story starts: at home, with a baby, discovering her new creative self. Tijana had always been good with her hands, doing different handicrafts, researching materials, colours and textures. When she first started her creative pursuits, she was lucky to join a rising global trend in tapestry making, and today she has a charming little studio. “The techniques I use are very old and weaving is deeply etched in the history of my people.” She points out that macramé, for example, cannot ever be replicated by a machine. It’s always made by hand.

Be one with nature

This soft-toned macramé wall decoration is inspired by forest and nature, created in boho style. A forest-found deer antler is used as the base from which the threads are woven, while the tapestry itself was made of recycled cotton rope in earthy colours.

Sea side

A combination of natural raffia and remaining fragments of cotton rope creates an effective wall decoration. From a modern geometric shape falls a bunch of threads resembling sea grass. The amount of recycled material used makes this piece altogether environmentally friendly.

Autumn on the wall

This hanging wall decoration was inspired by autumn colours and textures. Woven with the macraweave technique, the combination of macramé and hand weaving, the hoop is filled with exclusively natural materials, including a selection of dried flowers.

Different kind of minimalism

Made with macraweave technique, a combination of macramé and hand weaving, this wall decoration is minimalist in design. For this piece, only recycled materials were used: recycled cotton and different reused fabrics, in a pastel colour palette.
