"Envelop" is a collection Meredith created to commemorate her late mother and the maternal figures in the viewer's life. The natural fibers and dye were thoughtfully chosen to represent the feeling of a mother's embrace. The curves and varying textures show the different highs and lows of one may experience with the maternal figure(s) in their life.
