Hello! The other day I had the pleasure of wandering around RMIT Gallery. If you’ve never been before, I highly recommend a visit. Free entry to see some artwork that is always inspirational. Being a University gallery, they like bringing in existential work. It’s always a pleasure to visit and get lost in thought.
This particular day the gallery was featuring an exhibition called – Unfolding: New Indian Textiles. I came across Play Clan. From what I can gather they are a brand that sells clothing, home decor and stationary. The product is Indian inspired of course. A lot of colour and great prints. They presented a couple of pieces at RMIT – screen prints on cotton canvas, made with hand embroidery, featuring found objects and using traditional materials. I was wildly fascinated by the amazing embroidery and the beautiful story told in each piece.
Definitely check out Play Clan. They have some really cool stuff! I thought they would also sell their artwork but I think this was a once off piece they did for the gallery. Couldn’t find any other printed canvas artwork on the site.
Feel very inspired now to feature some beaded accessories in our own range!
