Offcut Textiles

The Offcut Textiles is an ongoing series of surface design experiments using naturally dyed fabric offcuts.  Recent work has taken the form of intricate hand sewn quilts made from naturally dyed bridal silk offcuts. These silk offcuts, which would otherwise go to landfill, have been coloured using a range of natural pigments such as avocado, nettle, annatto, weld, and logwood. Intricate hand stitching adds texture and detail to these bold, contemporary craft pieces. Their graphic shapes and compositions are determined by the shapes of the offcut textiles, making each quilt entirely unique.
