The development of new technologies in fishing has changed the natural habitats of our oceans and our emotive and personal relationship with them.

Similarly, this could also be said for our connection with the things we buy and the clothes we wear.

‘Time and Tide’ aims to repurpose waste plastics such as packaging and fishing line into functional aspects of knitwear design.

This aims to create a positive impact in highlighting both the conscious consumption of clothing and waste plastics and also illuminate the current ocean plastic crisis and how our tides are changing.
