CUBITTS are pleased to announce their latest artist-designed charity cleaning cloth, featuring the work of pre-eminent British artist Tracey Emin.
Emin is a Turner Prize nominee who emerged in the 1980s, during the Young British Artists movement. She is noted for her intense and confessional pieces, including Everyone I Have Ever Slept With 1963-1995, My Bed and The Last Thing I Said To You is Don’t Leave Me Here.
The artwork, I thought about you deeply more than you know, designed by Emin will feature on all Cubitts cleaning cloths for the next six months.
The cloths will also be available to purchase from www.cubitts.co.uk, as well as our five London stores – Soho, Spitalfields, Borough, St James’s and King’s Cross. All proceeds will go to Emin’s charity of choice, Terrence Higgins Trust. Emin is the sixth artist Cubitts have worked with on their cleaning cloths, following on from Stanley Donwood, Brian Grimwood, Lucy Dalzell, Hayden Kays and Becky Allen.
Emin’s work is ethereal, affecting and often autobiographical, exploring longing, sexuality and the human condition. Encapsulated in the quote ‘I thought about you deeply more than you know’ featured on the artwork. “When we started working with artists, we hoped that by celebrating the humble cleaning cloth, we’d encourage people to carry it, and avoid the tyranny of using their clothing as a lens cleaner. Now four years later, I’m humbled that we’re featuring the majestic Tracey Emin, and that her beguiling work will now be bulwark against a dirty cuff.”
