Textile design as a broad category is taken by the artist because of the expansion of creative possibilities, which she combines with a philosophically supported theme. In cooperation with Zabok Regeneration, based on sketches, the carpet was tufted by hand, so by changing the production methods, desirable oscillations in relief were obtained. Such relief finds its realisation only when a person’s hand passes through the paths of a white line woven with the tufting technique (white line). The artist imagines the observer psychologically walking through her lived memoirs, while by arousing the sense of touch she slowly travels along the curves of the white line on the carpet. In this context, tactility is an achievable path towards a therapeutic combination of textile design and the human psyche.
