Cloth – new cloth – clean, pristine, waiting, at the beginning of it’s life. I take the cloth and stitch it by hand, imparting my mark, bringing it to life so that it can begin it’s journey. The stitching changes the surface of the cloth, it becomes softer and more flexible with each row of stitching.
By indigo dyeing some of the samples the stitching will leave traces on the cloth. Yarns will each leave their own trace. I feel as though this is also the beginning of a journey for me, as I explore endless possibilities.
