Hanging, entitled Stripes into Pattern, by Kathleen Whyte

This silk hanging entitled 'Stripes into Pattern' was made by the artist Kathleen Whyte.

The banner-like hanging was made of handwoven Indian silk in stripes of red, blue and yellow using various threads of silk and gold metal, gold kid, gold braid and shisha glass. It has various areas of pattern and attachments of small diamond shapes, semicircles and shield shapes. The hanging is suspended from a heavy gold wrapped bar.

During the 1980s the Scottish Development Agency purchased a number of hand-crafted items for its Scottish Crafts Collection. The aim of the collection was to inform the public of craft production in Scotland through touring exhibitions and education programmes. When the Scottish Craft Council was wound up, the collection was transferred to the National Museums of Scotland.
