redress Design Award Collection
For her Redress Design Award collection Saveliin is inspired by Japanese contemporary ceramics and reflects the interesting shapes and textures in her designs. Saveliin applies the design techniques of up-cycling and reconstruction to pre and post consumer textile waste, creating new textiles through cutting and fusing into pre designed pattern pieces using a gelatin-based water-soluble material which has a low impact on the environment.
