Pieces of you

Pieces of You, like me, was born out of Africa. A few years ago I returned home to visit my family, who live in the middle of beautiful Nowhere. While photographing the stunningness that is home, I realised how important the natural world has become to me and how little of it there is in London. In that moment I decided that as both designer and teacher/lecturer, I have to ensure that whatever I put out there, takes nature into account. In terms of design opting for ethical is oftentimes more difficult and always more pricey; it's cheaper to mess up the environment and that's the bottom line. To encourage consumers to shop ethically and to read their labels I use recycled and ethically sound textiles to make contemporary homeware.
