‘Advocate for the Artisans’
Brass, copper, cotton, polyester, 2012
Advocate for the Artisans is a labelling system that aims to give consumers more information about the artisans and production behind Indian handmade products. The works are informative tags that are adaptable to jewellery and accessories, enabling consumers to endorse the artisans by advocating to others through this system. Kimberley Reh designed and made the work and was inspired by meeting artisan cluster groups on her trip to India for the Cultural Textiles Course in January 2012.
