Oceans, the mother and womb of life.

I always need to challenge myself as a creator.
In the past few years I have dedicated myself to the oceans, and the research and exploration of them.

I am severely shocked by the intense plastic pollution in our oceans. I already, for many years, had my concerns about excessive mass production and the superfluous human consumption, but realizing the depth and seriousness of the pollution made me rethink and require myself to adapt to our planet.

This collection is dedicated to the oceans, and the nature they provide. For this work i´m only using natural materials like cotton and jute, something which will have a significantly smaller impact on our earth and oceans than polymers*

*All the cotton in our products comes from more sustainable sources. This means that the cotton is either recycled, or grown with less water, less fertilisers and less pesticides, while increasing profit margins for the farmers.
Jute fiber is 100% bio-degradable and recyclable and thus environmentally friendly. It also has very low pesticide and fertilizer needs.

Plastics accumulate because they don’t biodegrade in the way many other substances do. They will photodegrade on exposure to the sun, but they do so properly only under dry conditions, and water inhibits this process. In marine environments, photodegraded plastic disintegrates into ever-smaller pieces while remaining polymers, even down to the molecular level. When floating plastic particles photodegrade down to zooplankton sizes, jellyfish attempt to consume them, and in this way the plastic enters the ocean food chain.
