'Threads & Bonds’ is a collection of handcrafted and reimagined textile vessels - mythical storage containers for memories, dreams, adventures, and life stories. My ode to friendship, family, and every thread of connection and bond formed throughout life. Valuing considered handcrafted design and the closer relationship this builds to the world around us, it encourages waste reduction through meaningful and long-term connections to objects. Friends’ treasured yet fading possessions have been deconstructed and combined with lush materials to create newly reimagined objects. Inspired by precious family textile heirlooms, I have realised the designs through embroidery, hand-painting, and digital fabric printing.
