Frédérique Morrel’s Tapestry Taxidermy

French design company, Frédérique Morrel, is composed of a husband and wife team of Aaron Levin and Frédérique Morrel. Together, they create life-sized tapestry of taxidermy-esk sculptures. Their intricate needlework was featured during Paris Design Week 2011. Made from polyurethane taxidermy molds and then covered in vintage needlework with real antlers, for the deer entitled “Ma Biche” . The couple says, “Our products have been carefully re-made using vintage needlework saved from oblivion in the interest of the redemption of the painstaking work involved in their original creation. When wandering around markets or garage sales we’re often very saddened to see discarded embroidery. We think about the love, time, craftsmanship and patience that went into creating such beautiful things and find it so sad that they end up unwanted and for sale for a few dollars. all of those wonderful tablecloths, doilies and cushions and the skills that are evident in those discarded things are in danger of being lost to future generations.” To see more of the dynamic duo’s amazing work, visit their website here.
