Boxoftrix – textile meandering….

Boxoftrix handmakes unique and exquisite embroidered framed art, textile jewellery and accessories made from recycled wool blankets, vintage crochet, old denim jeans, and many of the pieces are embellished and hand embroidered. As well as fabric items Boxoftrix make greetings cards and paper bunting from recycled maps and sheet music.

“I like to recycle as much as possible in my work to keep costs low, benefiting everyone. I am just a small creative business making whatever I take a notion to do and reusing and repurposing what I have.”

We’re delighted to welcome Boxofrix to our ART:JAM on Saturday 12th September at Inverkeithing Civic Centre.
