Traditional sequins are incredibly wasteful with over 30% of the material wasted in production as the sequins are cut. To make the environmental impact even worse, most sequins are made from single use plastic and much of occasion ware is only worn 2-3 times before sitting in the back of a wardrobe and then ending up in landfill.
What if embellishments could be grown onto cloth instead?
These are my results, exploring alternative methods of surface pattination, growing crystals on cloth, using melted plastics and resin.
