Inspired by colourful florals and our ever growing need for conscious design, I have a sustainable and waste free approach to textiles. I work with recycled, used and waste plastic materials to transform them into beautifully designed and vibrant pieces for the home using textile techniques. All of the plastics are collected locally, washed and sorted before being recreated. Working with the limitations of the materials, the plastic is either hand painted or dyed before being cut, shaped and sometimes stitched. Design should contribute to the environment and I love giving new life to old materials.
