Three times more | Wall Piece
A new geometric wall weaving that belongs to my ongoing series that explores inequality statistics through weaving.
This piece is influenced by the UN Women's report "Whose time to care?" that records that before Covid-19 "women already spent about 3 times as many hours on unpaid domestic work than men" and this has only increased. This ratio has been incorporated into the pattern of the weaving.
• Dimensions: 200mm wide x 550mm long
• Weft yarn: Wool, wool jute & cotton

• Comes with a strip of tack board to mount the weaving to the wall
