" Culture is something that evolves out of the simple, enduring
Elements of everyday life; elements most thoughtfully expressed
in the folk arts and crafts of a nation. "

I have always loved mid century modern Design style, specially patterns and textiles from that Period.
 Researching for ideas, I came across Thor Hansen's work again and his great achievements in Canadian design and craft history.
I Admire his work, and how he persuaded a Canadian design identity by encouraging the synthesis of craft and folk art.
