Portrait of a Textile Worker
Artist Terese Agnew has created a quilt over two years of a young femail garment worker from Bangladesh.
Milwaukee artist Terese Agnew has completed an epic 9'x9' quilt, beautifully depicting a young female garment worker from Bangladesh, sewn entirely with tens of thousands of clothing labels donated by thousands of people across the U.S. and abroad. Her "Portrait of a Textile Worker" took two years to complete. Agnew's goal was to show us the human face behind the label, so we could finally know the nameless and voiceless workers across the developing world who make the goods we purchase, often under miserable sweatshop conditions.
