Hello, my name is Viv Sliwka. My work has envolved from a lifelong obsession with collecting vintage American, French and British textiles, haberdashery and paper ephemera.
Nothing gives me greater pleasure than to incorporate a little of the past into my one off handmade pieces. Texture plays a big part in my work, softly worn printed fabrics, alongside hand woven linens. Lovely!
I design and make mixed media textile collage, accessories, needlecases and purses, finished with hand embroidery for lots more texture and colour. You will also always find a button or two!
All made in my garden studio in Staffordshire, UK.
