Anthropologie and the “Tweed Taxidermist”

Earlier this week Anthropologie invited me to attend a special preview of their latest exhibition in the Kings Road store in London. What I saw was something I certainly wasn’t prepared for. The initial briefing was that I was going to see the work of Chloe Harrison, an artist known for her genius work with recycled and locally sourced materials in creating trophy animal heads. What I found was an artist that I shall forever call the “tweed taxidermist”. Chloe’s creations are all handcrafted using traditional stitching techniques and are all 100% unique! She creates animals from the same tweed we wear on our backs in the winter months! Only I’ve never in my life seen tweed worked this way. The pictures say all that I can’t possibly put into words. It’s worth a trip into the store to check everything out up close! However, I’d suggest getting in there pretty quickly as these pieces will sell out in no time. I’m already lining up to commission a piece for my home. I was sincerely moved and beyond impressed with this group of work and I guarantee this will not be the last piece you read about Chloe Harrison on this blog! Get ready for a big bragging when I finally manage to save enough for my very own Harrison!
