An investigation into sustainable hand-crafted fabrics as a way to engage and remind the audience of the trace we are leaving on the planet. Ocean pollution and traces of discarded items are the fossil remains of today.

This collection aims to consider the effects of the current Anthropocene epoch, in which humans have a significant impact on the Earth's geology and ecosystems, including climate change. To produce a collection of luxury interior fabrics with a focus on the traceability of fibres and consideration for the lasting traces that we leave behind. A strong emphasis on sourcing of high-quality wool and natural fibres which will return nutrients to the earth at the end of their life cycle and experimental weaving using discarded waste products to create something desirable once more.
