Tim Johnson: Soft Pocket

Main body – cotton, Border twining – linen.

I first started exploring ply-splitting during my residency with Timeless Textiles in 2017 and have continued to explore it’s possibilities since. This humble white pocket captures and contains a small space for your reflection. 20cm x 20cm x 10cm
