Fishing & Ghost Nets - Utilising Waste Through Constructed Textiles
This project aims to draw attention to the extent of marine waste and to show the possibilities of re-cycling materials through knitted and constructed textiles. Lighting and wall hanging pieces have been designed for sustainable interior spaces.
Re-cycled cable ties and rope provide the structure of this lampshade which features laddering stitches to cast shadow.
