Jen Pleadwell

thousand flowers textiles are handmade in Vancouver, BC by designer Jenefer Pleadwell. Incorporating a variety of techniques including weaving, dyeing, and surface embellishment, Jen creates pieces one by one in the couture artisan tradition. Her work in textiles is an attempt to bring old technique into a relevant modern context. Each stage of her process deliberately embraces the slow and the labourious, sentiments that she balances with the desire to be innovative and to push things forward in her discipline.
