SEA ME: A rug made of sea algae — Delft, The Netherlands
During the Dutch Design Week Studio Nienke Hoogvliet presented her new project: SEA ME. A rug made of sea algae yarn, knotted by hand in an old fishing net. Capturing the contrast between the polluting plastic waste issues and the beautiful things the sea has to offer. Nienke Hoogvliet wanted to draw attention to this rather new material. A yarn made of sea algae could perhaps offer a solution for the sustainability issues in the textile industry.
