This coat was 1 of 3 designed for the Beyond the Bothy Exhibition in Sept 2019 – a collection of wearable pieces, with surface decoration inspired by research of the history of the local textile industry and exploring parallels with the textiles industry of today. Fuelled by my ethos of the need for sustainability, it is only with traceability and transparency that we are able to make an informed decision of what we wear on our bodies, just as we do for the food we eat.
