Unravelling the Threads of Identity through Textiles: Jacquard Collection
During my final year of university, I undertook a self-initiated project as an extension of my dissertation topic surrounding the links between identity, culture, and textiles. I explored what Caribbean culture means to me by interpreting my St Kitts heritage into textiles.
The jacquard collection is the final body of figurative textiles that draws inspiration from nature imagery. All samples in this collection were handwoven with hand-dyed West Indian Sea Island cotton.
