Chyna Sysa found her passion for illustration, after she went deaf. She is the founder of Cjilbycjil, an online shop where she sells art and apparel with her customisable illustrations.

Her apron “Bake It” is part of a wider collection of home textiles designed by University of Arts London students, to celebrate the coming together of UAL’s Creative Shift and not just a shop.

The students were commissioned to design a range of homeware inspired by the theme ‘home’ and what emotions this elicits for them.

Working with interior designer Eva Sonaike, the students took part in a 6-week collaborative project to create products ready for market. The students were supported through a process that took them from product ideation to manufacture to visual merchandise.
