I will use my textile blog to reflect on the travelling I have done to Asia, Africa and the Middle East as a charity worker over the past 10 years. It will also show my journey of discovery into the world of textiles.
This blog’s name is inspired by the novel ‘Travels with My Aunt’ (1969) written by Graham Greene. This book charts the travels of Henry Pulling, a retired bank manager, and his eccentric Aunt Augusta across the world. Henry exchanges his quiet suburban existence for a world full of adventure. Graham Greene opened my eyes to British literature and the adventures of travel when at the age of 12 years I found a battered copy of ‘Travels with My Aunt’ in my Grandpa’s dusty book shelves.
