Coraux Mei at the Selvedge Spring Fair

Selvedge Selvedge Fairs

'Passionately weaving through various wonderful corners of the world, I've foraged and foraged and found and found an abundance of beautiful & colourful textiles and artefacts. These textiles and artefacts hold history, meaning, wisdom, beliefs and identity containing precious information on these communities, thus; "tales-are-made". Coraux Mei focuses on preserving indigenous symbols by combining tribal textiles with an urban approach.'

-May San, British designer and founder of Coraux Mei. P1140517 May San began developing Coraux Mei in 2009, when she spent time with various tribes whilst travelling. May San became extremely interested in the Flower Hmong group, a hill tribe in North Vietnam. In particular the tribe's colourful patterns and intricate weavings, embroideries and the symbolic meanings behind the textiles led May San to establishing Coraux Mei. P1230107 Coraux Mei sells pieces both ready-made by tribes and made by herself from materials, such as leather from the tribes. The ultimate aim being to create products that represent and support indigenous tribes and their craftsmanship as well as sourcing an urban market for the goods.
