|Object||Embroidered Working Cloths|
A tribute to the classical working cloth. There is not much remaining of central Europes textile industries but in the neighbouring village of Schüttorf working clothes and fire brigades protective suits are still made – from the yarn to the final product. What a happy coincidence since Antje and Adam long for Embroidered Working Clothes for years now.
The motifs for the embroidery are inspired by the main crops of the county – corn, corn, corn, potatoes, cereals and grass. The collection includes the Corn Overall, the Potato Cardigan, the Cereal Overall, the Promised Pastures and the Children’s Colorado Beetle Overall.
