Corkboard Placemat Gift Set x Louise Bourgeois

Fabric played an important role in Bourgeois's life. She grew up surrounded by the textiles of her parents tapestry restoration workshop, and from the age of twelve helped the business by drawing in the sections of the missing parts that were to be repaired. A life-long hoarder of clothes and household items such as tablecloths, napkins and bed linen, from the mid-nineties Bourgeois cut up and re-stitched these, transforming her lived materials into art. Through sewing she attempted to effect psychological repair: "I always had the fear of being separated and abandoned. The sewing is my attempt to keep things together and make things whole."
