PROJECT IN SHORT
An interchangeable modular system of textile pieces can be transformed by the user to create a new piece of clothing or interior accessories which promote sustainable design. Through playful experimentation with colour, shape and textiles I have created a product that can be altered over and over again, thus creating a sustainable product.
Can transformative textiles support sustainable design in our new nomadic way of life?
WHAT MATERIALS AND TECHNIQUES HAVE YOU USED?
» I used a variety of materials such as leather, e-leather bonded with cashmere, wool felt and wood so the user has more choice, therefore creating a greater range of products. With regards to technique I used laser cutting and various printing processes; such as sublimation printing on wood, acid printing on wool felt, etching onto leather as well as handcraft techniques.
WHAT INSPIRES YOU?
» I was inspired by the fundamental geometric structure and patterns of growth found in nature. I could see how diﬀerent shapes were seemingly organised to create a ﬁnal product, reminiscent of children playing with Lego. This inspired me to create something that the user can continually refashion to create a sustainable product. «
WHAT DOES TEXTILE FUTURES MEAN TO YOU?
» I am personally interested in objects and spaces that have lost their value through use or abandonment. I want people to be able to rejuvenate these dead spaces and abandoned objects through transformative, multifunctional and interactive processes using modular textiles. «
