As someone who tries to be mindful of the big-picture problems we all face as a global society, admiring handwoven linen trim (or even the entire category of “textiles”) can feel — indulgent. Tenth Post Studio reminds us, however, that what may be cast as a superficial luxury can also be meaningful: “Detail and ornamentation invites the viewer to pause, relax, look closer.” The same can be said for art, architecture, literature, and music. Even in in the world as it is today, little details matter.
