Kate Goldsworthy

Kate Goldsworthy, British designer by TEXTILE DESIGNERS.

HINT: Sustainable textiles for decorative applications.

"Kate Goldsworthy is something out of the ordinary, not only because she has passion for sustainable design , but also because she venartes the materials that most textile designers shy away from. 'The materials I use are, in themselves, completely unremarkable; in fact, it is actually their extreme ordinariness that I find so appealing'. "

"The processes I'm developing are inspired by the traditions of lace making, apliqué and marquetry, but also the hi-tech polymer recycling technologies that use experimental surface treatments to 'upgrade' samples mixed-fibre waste."*

*from the book TEXTILE DESIGNERS, at the cutting edge. By Bradley Quinn.
