Textile Animals by Bryony Jennings

Bryony Jennings is a UK based designer and owner of the shop called Pretty Scruffy where sells amazing animal sculptures that she constructs using fabric donated by people in her neighborhood and reclaimed materials. Her life-size fabric sculptures are inspired by nature and born out "of a fascination with the shape and beauty of living bodies, as well as an interest in the characteristics of different species of animal." She shares: "I try and give my animals personality and communicate something of their character through their posture and expression." Someday she would like to have a huge barn inhabited by her textile wildlife and foliage. 

Her store in Chichester is closed currently, she is taking a little time off after her baby boy was born in January. You can follow her Facebook page where she posts updates on her upcoming exhibitions and shows.
