Introduction "...Textiles are an intrinsic part of our lives; from birth to death our skin is almost always in contact with textiles. I see the creation of textiles as a basic human skill -our ability to clothe ourselves sets us apart, as humans and as individuals. I am intrigued by the concept of clothing as a second skin –a fabric that protects you physically, psychologically and emotionally, but also ages with you, wears and changes, collecting marks of your life. Everyone has a favourite piece of clothing, perhaps chosen for comfort or aesthetics, but becoming more special the more we wear it. We become attached to certain textiles; they gather memories and reflect moments from our own lives back to us..." http://www.llynfitextiles.co.uk/emily.html
