“Julie Krakowski is a designer creating conceptual textiles. Take Coffee and Cigarettes I – a series of textiles based on the marks typically left on linens by everyday life, such as cigarette burns, and food stains. Each mark is painstakingly embroidered into the linen. This series seeks to ‘accentuate the importance of the random and the ambiguity between the worn and the precious’. Other textile explorations look at material transformation, such as molting and shedding, as well as textiles based on the organic world of mosses, vines, flowers, lichens and shells.”
