The Plant Swag, 2020
The Plant Swag utilises discarded materials that would normally end up in landfill and re-imagines them into a sophisticated and functional object that is. As an object of functional use, The Plant Swag is water resistant and easy to manoeuvre. The brass eyelets and knots in the ropes are a nod to the sail cloths nautical history from which they come. Each plant swag is completely unique and made by hand.
