TAXTILES
Rebeca Dick



 

What is Taxtiles?

Taxtiles is a merge of two words "Textile & Taxidermy", breaking the boundaries between textile and taxidermy, experimenting with the techniques used in taxidermy to create bespoke luxury items for the home and office.


 

The materials used in the textile taxidermy are sustainable yarns, threads and fabric. Rebeca then uses a technique she created herself called weave binding. All sculptures are posable and can interact with each other; even the textile trophy heads are posable with the ears.

Every sculpture is bespoke and individual. They can vary in colour and personality which gives them character. Every sculpture has a name.

 

Rebeca also does free-hand embroidery and illustrates motifs which are created into canvassed pieces or cushions. The cushions have different materials on the back and some have the real animal incorporated into the products.

NOTE: All taxidermy specimens and fur/feathers are ethically sourced and have been either road-kill, euthanised wild-life from the vets and RSPCA which couldn't be saved due to injuries and illness. No animals or bird was killed when making the pieces. They were already dead when acquired.

 

 

Established by Becky Dick in 2014. Graduated in 2015 First Class Honours BA (Hons) Decorative Arts, specialised in 3D Textiles & Embroidery.

Also a qualified Taxidermist, she undertook training with professional taxidermist David Keningale in 2014.
