Charity: Bomenstichting

Kiki van Eijk (1978)
Charity: Bomenstichting

Something blue, something old, something embroidered and something new!
A long, fitting title for what once was a white furnished chair. Kiki van Eijk reused the existing fabric type on the seat and took it to the Textile Museum’s Textile Lab in Tilburg. From her experiment a new type of fabric emerged. She has embroidered it by hand with images of trees and leaves. They symbolise her charity of choice: the Bomenstichting (Tree Foundation). “The way we treat the earth and in particular
the way we work with nature determine our future,” says the designer.
