»Every material that we use comes from the ecosphere and eventually goes back to it.« – Ann Thorpe
The way humans use, extract, manufacture and dispose of materials have concerned me for many years, long before I started this design program. It has formed my way of making as a designer, and because of my love for textiles, I have been applying it in that field of practise. I want to design textiles that function and can be used frequently, with a purpose and in the end, decompose before I do.
