Textile Message

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?


Emotional Objects 

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.
