Reclaimed-textile artist Maryanne Munteanu has been transforming garments since 2003.
Fusing both her love of art and a fascination with fashion, Maryanne gathers and re-purposes pure natural textiles such as wool, cotton, silk and linen garments – giving them a new lease of life.
Each piece is unique and intuitively handmade, in Melbourne.
Creations are individually pinned into place like a puzzle. Exploring existing garment elements and using a no-waste method by cutting the whole garment and reconstructing it.
Experimental textile techniques are applied including wood-firing, hand-dying, and machine knitting to create one of a kind, comfortable, and versatile wearable creations.
Hand-screen-printed labels complete the garments’ aesthetics. Gathered Pieces is passionate about up-cycling.
