Textiles and Design

Monisha Kumar


In my Major Textiles Project, I made a wall hanging furnishing. Through techniques such as embroidery, patchwork, applique and couching, I used texture to inform a forest environment during the night. Using a style of patchwork inspired by traditional Japanese ‘boro,’ I was able to use completely recycled fabrics. This informs depth and a unique sense of texture within the background. I intended to bring the depth and colour of the natural environment and bring it into indoor spaces in an environmentally friendly manner.
