REMINISCENT 
 
{
NEW}

 

Reinterpreting the fragrance industry, Reminiscent is an experimental sensorial collection that uses natural ways to integrate and infuse scents into handmade textiles through weaving, embroidery, and fragrant embellishments.

 

The sense of smell is a powerful catalyst to trigger memories and feelings of calm and comfort. Reminiscent explores the concept of scents for wellness and how fragrances can be expressed visually through color, patterns, and textures. It is a system of using textiles as aromatherapy to condense time and distance and create an immersive experience to reconnect with nature, nostalgia, home, and identity.

Reminiscent is currently on display at the Delaware Contemporary, Wilmington DE as part of the show 'Remembrances, Recollections, and Retrospect' from
January 22-May 30, 2022.
