Cottagecore is an aesthetic movement that gained fast popularity in 2020. It combines aspects of farming, outdoors, and rustic crafts and goods. Some decidedly cottagecore items are: fresh produce, fresh baked goods, coffee and tea, cats, vintage clothing, mushrooms, autumn, string instruments, lily pads, florals, and Victorian-esque clothing and art.
A large feature of cottagecore is artfully hand-crafted artwork. In 2020 during the boom of cottagecore, many people began ditching fast made art pieces, and began exploring local artists. Fabric Collages are perfect for cottagecore. Combining different mediums are art and beautiful scenery is a large part of what cottagecore is!
Below are five of Tobi’s collages that are perfect for your cottagecore aesthetic.
Rats are decidedly cottagecore- whether it is because they often come with the territory of cottage and farm living, or because they are cute, nobody knows!
At first glance, one sees two adorable rats sneaking some cherries. With deeper inspection, Tobi notes: “Can we hypothesize that the bowl of cherries represents Life? Then the rats are those elements which get in to spoil the best things that life offers, not necessarily out of malice, but solely to satisfy their own appetites”.
