What is Taxtiles?
Taxtiles is a merge of two words "Textile & Taxidermy"
Breaking the boundaries between textile and taxidermy. Experimenting with the techniques used in taxidermy to create bespoke luxury items for the home and office.
The materials used in the textile taxidermy is recycled yarn from looms on the weave machine. They are offcuts which are then up cycled to create creatures such as the hares. All sculptures are pose able and can interact with each other. Even the textile trophy heads are pose able with the ears.
Every sculpture is bespoke and individual. They can vary in colour and personality which gives them character. Every sculpture has a name. The illustrative motifs are free-hand embroidery which are created into canvassed pieces or cushions. The cushions have different materials on the back and some have the real animal incorporated into the products.
NOTE: All taxidermy specimens and fur/feathers are ethically sourced and have been either road-kill, euthanised wild-life from the vets and RSPCA which couldn't be saved due to injuries and illness. No animals or bird was killed when making the pieces. They were already dead when acquired. .
Taxtiles was created by Rebeca Dick. Graduating in July 2015 in BA (Hons) Decorative Arts, specialised in 3D Textiles & Embroidery.
Also a qualified Taxidermist, she undertook training with professional taxidermist - David Keningale in 2014.
