Cloth Object uses fibers and textiles to blend the line between function and art. Fibers and textiles protect, provide warmth, and contain, but those made by hand go farther by imbuing a moment, a mood, a place, and the culture of its maker. By understanding these points of view, we better appreciate and can be empowered by these artisanal works.
At Cloth Object, we support artisanal communties in and around the Philippines and explore the handmade traditions of weaving, dyeing, knotting, and basket making to craft beautiful and timeless products.
Emilyn is a fiber artist living in Los Angeles, California.
