ELEVATING THE ARTIFACT
tHEE VESTMENTS explores contemporary life and culture through the creation of fine art celebratory artifacts that illuminate our unseen world and celebrate the beauty found within the cracks in the façade.
tHEE VESTMENTS was inspired initially by the discovery of 11th century Bog People, buried in water, weathered by peat, preserved for millennia, their history and experience a mystery, their disturbing beauty still alive.
Through a series of capsules, each piece of fine art is created with woven and embellished textiles, raw silk, wool, linen….. reclaiming words and shapes from ancient and contemporary sources.
They have been produced in a numbered series of 100 pieces for each colour story.
All of our fabrics and fibres are natural and all printing uses non-toxic water-based pigment.
Our packaging is made from recycled materials.
We are sensitive to the quantity and quality of the raw materials being consumed.
tHEE VESTMENTS are made to order and delivery times will vary depending on where and by whom they are made.
SUPPORTING COMPLEXITY IS THE KEY TO JOY
As each capsule reflects and responds to a different aspect of our shared experience, so each capsule will be paired with a corresponding charity who will receive a percentage of sales from that capsule. We are currently donating proceeds from sales to the following charities:
