Biodegradable textiles project

Here are some examples of some pieces that i have made for my Level 5 Field retrieval project; Biodegradable textiles for lingerie.

These have been inspired by ‘natures veins’ such as rock and sediment layers in earth, camouflaged patterns and ariel views. I have recycled paper magazines and manipulated them to create patterns by tearing, cutting, layering and weaving them. My next aim is to make my own sheets of paper. I would like to turn the recycled magazine paper into something thats completely unrecognisable as they once were. By putting the paper into a blender and making a pulp, the prints of the magazine will not be seen anymore, hopefully producing speckled patterns like what can be seen within natures grains.
