Textile designer with a focus on material innovation and sustainable approaches. Abi’s work is driven by circular design strategies to create solutions for the environmentally detrimental practises within the fast fashion industry. She aims to challenge preconceptions of what waste is by utilising it as a valuable resource to create beautiful, luxurious materials that leave no negative trace on the environment. Her creative practise has an experimental, multidisciplinary approach, with a specialist interest in biodesign, natural dyeing and printing, and pre-industrial techniques such as hand spinning, felting and embroidery to defy the fast fashion throwaway culture and promote a more responsible, slow fashion movement.
