005 Embroidered Patterns

Designed by: Elaine Yan Ling Ng (The Fabrick Lab)

Design Trust Affiliation: Design Trust Feature Grantee and Design Trust Futures Studio 2019 Mentee

Description: Elaine was inspired by her research trips to Guizhou villages and the region’s strong heritage in textile crafts. She sees how the age-old craft bonds family and strengthen relationships.

“The spirit of handmade means, the object cannot be replicated and carries with it the makers’ unique ‘handwriting’,” says Elaine, “This prototype explores how we can encourage familial love and value through craft, and match it with a functional application.”
