Textile fibers contribute to a large portion of disposed waste. 85% of textile waste are not recycled. Every year, vast amounts of consumer and industrial plastic waste ends up in landfills, incinerators or even worse.8 million tons of plastic waste go into the ocean every year.
I want to design sneakers by using plastic and textile from the waste of the ocean. Inspired by the wave of the ocean and tropical fish. I want to capture the organic and architectural elements of both, and apply them in the form of my sneaker design.
