The Kosmos Project was designed to commemorate the Kupala Night festival in Poland with these innovative animal tapestries. Each of these draperies features a kaleidoscopic woven graphic of various woodland creatures.

In the Slavic cultures, the Kupala Night festival celebrates the summer solstice. These vivid tapestries by Kosmos Project tap into this tradition with woolen weaving combined with enigmatic illustrations of bears, foxes and birds. Each of the woven works of art is designed with a geometric style rendering the animals in triangular colorful shapes. This modular style adds a distinct kaleidoscopic effect to the tapestries that is breathtaking to look at as well as wrapped up in years of history. For those interested in seeing these embroideries, they'll be hanging on display in October at the Dutch Design Week.
