Cloth is the silent companion of us all: used to protect, comfort and decorate. Exploring techniques used by my mother, aunt and grandmother - stitching, patching, repairing and darning - I have transformed and reworked this African cloth, giving it new life and preserving the memories bound within it. The rhythm of stitching calms my mind and body, helping to heal and mend my body while bringing a warm glow to my soul, like a soothing gentle meditation.
Materials
Vintage African indigo dyed strip cloth; patches of vintage recycled cotton, silk and linen; silk, cotton & linen threads.
