British artist Mandy Pattullo creates gorgeous pieces of stitched and pieced textiles using vintage fabrics and embroideries. Mandy says she particularly loves textiles “which show a history of use, and evidence of a previous female needleworker”. Eschewing new materials, she instead collects fabrics with a history and patina.
I absolutely love this pieced together textile book which is rich in colour and texture, and composed of layers of time, history and love. It’s a reminder of simpler times and a slower pace of life – things that hold so much appeal for many of us in our frenetic lives.
