Sustainable Shag

Woven from thousands scraps of fabric

It's no secret that the textile industry is one of the biggest pollutants. Over-production overwhelms even donation centers. Though this luscious pillow, I wove ribbons from packaging, pieces ripped clothes, netting, and more. Instead of opening up the paint tubes, I used the materials around me to create this colorful rug-pillow.

Raised in the US, I moved to Israel at 18 years old. From a young age, I've placed human kindness and volunteerism as my focus. With everything I do, I seek how I can help others, and that only continues throughout my design work.

As a textile design student based in Tel Aviv, I take inspiration from the diverse people I meet, placing a focus on the changes faced by people with disabilities. From putting a smile on someone's face by unique color choice to developing a new type of fabric to add comfort, I believe that design should serve a purpose and contribute to the bettering of peoples' lives.

The design of this piece was taken from a collage I created. Line by line of the rug, I closely followed the color patterns to eventually achieve this woven interpretation.
