TOAST has collaborated with Tom of Holland, a Brighton-based textile artist at the forefront of the mending movement, for an exhibition and workshop at our Redchurch Street shop for Shoreditch Design Triangle. For our Autumn Winter 2021 Collection, Tom has reimagined a selection of TOAST shirts, which were returns with minor faults, breathing new life into each.
Embroidered with silk threads and rows of intricate repeat stitches, each boxy Italian-poplin shirt will be entirely unique. The bespoke pieces are accompanied by handcrafted labels, detailing the techniques Tom has used. Each shirt will be available for purchase from the installation. Come along to view the collaboration from the 18th – 26th September.
Tom will also be leading a hand-stitching workshop on Saturday 18th September to demonstrate different techniques and how they can be used for repair. Workshop tickets to attend in person cost £25, Live Stream tickets cost £10 and 20% of the ticket price will be donated to Crafts Council UK.
