Textile Message is a project about favourite pieces of clothing and textiles.
What’s your favourite piece of clothing?
Pieced Work asked people for responses to the following questions:
What’s your favourite piece of clothing or textile object?
Your dream outfit or item?
A piece of clothing or textile thing that haunts you?
From the treasured to the dispensable, fashionable to practical, each piece means something important to the person who owns it: some are gifts; some are items that have followed the writer across continents. Most have been in use for many years. There are things that are only remembered; there are things collected.
These are individual stories about emotional, historical, and political objects: dresses, chairs, tea-towels, ribbons, book-bags, and more.
