Christine Mayer - Peace Collection
Continuing on the theme of new ideas, second time around, I was delighted to see Christine Mayer's Peace Collection featured recently in Selvedge. Although pricey, Selvedge is a quality textile publication showcasing the unique, artisan and commercial in fashion and textiles. I was lucky enough to have a subscription as a Christmas present. The feature on Christine's work shows reworked flour bags, dishcloths and other pre-used utility fabrics given a new purpose. Based in Berlin, Christine is also a well known theatre costume designer.
