The Memory of Trees - Cotton Linen Short Top (Blue)


Collaboration between Agy Textile Artist & You Living

The Memory of Trees
Trees grow slowly and experience so many things during their lifetime.  While the tree bark is a protective layer, its textures and layers are what holds the memories of the pressures of the changing landscape, and that of man’s desires.  

The 100% natural cotton linen short top is handmade by Taiwanese slow fashion house Cheng's Atelier;  painted and embroidered in Agy's studio in Singapore.  The unique piece captures the beauty of bark and the essence of slow fashion.   Each piece is unique and no two pieces are identical.    

Each garment will only be made upon receiving of order.  As we adopt to slow fashion practices, the pre-order method will ensure minimum fashion waste.  

The pre-order process takes ~ 4 - 8 weeks. The construction of the sustainable garment begins with the weaving of the cloth from cotton and linen, and treatment with plant enzymes. After its construction, the garment will be delicately painted and embroidered on by Agy.

Limited Edition:
This unique collectible piece is only available for pre-order from 23 Sep till 31 Oct 2022.  Each piece will be numbered.

About the Artist:

Agatha Lee "Agy" is a Singapore-based textile artist specialising in embroidery. She creates textile collages and 3D textures,  through free motion machine embroidery, handstitching and marking, that are not only vibrant and dynamic, but captivate the viewer. Her previous career as an environmental policy maker has enabled her to bridge the gap between sustainability and art, and has encouraged her to create works to reconnect people with not only the environment, but their inner tortoise. As an environmental advocate, her work explores slowing down, and making visible the things that are usually 'hidden' from the public.  Agy has exhibited and sold work in Singapore, Europe and Australia, and holds regular workshops as part of her practice. She is a member of the Society for Embroidery Work and Fertile Art Refinery Singapore, and has been featured in Her World, TODAY, The Straits Times Singapore, Channel News Asia and Channel 8.
