The New Value of Waste


Technique: Weave
Material: Polyester, Nylon, Silk
このプロジェクトでは、ロンドンのプリントメーカーJhon Kalder Fabric Makerから協賛を受け、在庫生地を使用し織生地に加工しました。

I am developing woven patterns from printed fabrics to add beauty to the print pattern through the technique of weaving, which was inspired by traditional ikat fabrics. Fascinated by the woven structures, I am trying to play with various patterns and their interaction with the materials and creating woven textiles which can be used for fashion products. One of the most important aspect of my theme is to recreate fabrics and to add value to the waste. There are a huge amount of waste materials generated by the fashion industry every season and I have been working with them.  I innovated the way to utilise the waste materials and created original yarns out of waste. These yarns can be used for both industrial weaving looms and hand-weaving loom. Beautiful Ikat patterns from waste textiles are born again as completely new and beautiful materials.
