Old masters with a modern twist. 

Search, discover, and perhaps recognise the composite creature of Eiko Borcherding's exceptional drawings through this handmade collection of wearable art. Metallic nickel, antique silver, and fine bronze threads are delicately overlaid to recreate Eiko's shimmering pencil drawings. The eye-catching hand embroidery is laid on a soft cashmere weave and perfected to capture the artist’s signature collage style. A luxurious gift for her, for the individualistic art lover, who appreciates the animal kingdom and is concerned about the environment and nature.

Playful and majestic.

So soft is the cashmere canvas, with figures torn between states of conscious and unconscious, a paralysis, without the need to separate reality and dreams. A playful yet elegant hand-embroidered collection of wearable art, a figment of Jill Tegan Doherty’s imagination. Wearing these lively pieces of art is bold – a luxurious gift for the woman who loves majestic art.

ARTISTIC COMMENTARY 

 

The Puppets of Darkness is a series launched in support of the Ukraine, and a desire to gain an alternative perspective of the seismic geopolitical shifts being etched in the world around us. All pieces from this collection are based on satellite photos (NASA and ESA), reinterpreted at By Told, and embellished by our talented embroidery partners in Mumbai. All profits from the series will be donated to the UNHCR and Bellingcat. Bellingcat is an NGO working with satellite imagery, among many other resources, to report on and expose the truth on important topics shaping the world around us. 

Politics and activism.
