About Eloise Rapp
Eloise is a textile designer and educator working on Dharug and Gundungurra land in the Blue Mountains. Through her design studio, Push Pull Textiles, she applies the wisdom of traditional textile methods and philosophies to contemporary challenges in design and manufacturing. Working from the principle that any material can be broken down and re-assembled, Push Pull’s purpose is to use what is available—rejecting outdated and harmful models of overproduction and instead exploring the potential of what already exists. The results are rich and expressive studies in the transformational quality of hand making.
