Discarded Materials

About this project

A collection of woven textiles exploring responsible design and waste streams as possible materials. Conscious to design with the life cycle of materials in mind, only natural materials discarded by other maker’s design processes are used. Willow from a local furniture maker, rush from makers of rush matting and yarns from leftover mill stock.
