Maxine Sutton: Sew Perfect for Home

30Oct06

Thanks to designTURF I now know about the beautiful work of British textile artist and painter Maxine Sutton. Sutton ingeniously brings together honored crafts of embroidery, needle punch felting and screenprinting into her textiles and interior products. The result: a fresh take on old-meets-new to create whimsical patterns with a hint of retro chic. Not to mention made with eco-friendly style in mind.


The Fab Factor:
Sutton’s commitment to sustainable style begins with the use of reclaimed or organic fabrics and fibers for her creations. She sources plant-dyed merino-wool yarns from the Pyrenees, and she refashions recycled sweaters and shirts for her cushions that are filled with organic wool.

Where to find Maxine Sutton:

One of her embroidered prints are available for $300 at Anthropologie

Sutton will also be showing at:
Brighton Craft Fair
November 24-26
Corn Exchange
Brighton, West Sussex
