Margo Selby X Love Welcomes Patchwork Blanket - Shirin
Due to popular demand the Love Welcomes team has made a second release of the Margo x Love Welcomes Blankets.
Textile artist and designer, Margo Selby, has donated an extensive archive of remnants to our team in our London workshop employing women from refugee backgrounds. Margo has worked closely with our team to make individual textile artworks that can be used as a statement piece in your home in support of refugees – to be displayed proudly in your home, as a decorative throw across a bed or sofa – or installed on a wall as a gallery art piece. The sewing circle is a safe space for women to work together creatively, and share their stories. The rich eclecticism of the compositions and patchworking represents the lives and journeys of these women and their experiences.
Each blanket is a unique composition of beautifully juxtaposed Margo Selby designs. Colour blocks and patterns of varying scales are constructed and stitched together with an instinctive and freeform approach; each piece is an abstract artwork. They are one-offs, each one never-to-be repeated; an idiosyncratic archive of Margo Selby woven textile design (the last examples in some cases), filtered through the sensibilities of the makers and the collaborative process.
