Carmen Machado Textiles

Carmen Machado is using gathered nylon rope and fishing line and incorporating this into the new 'fabric' of her chairs. The result is a beautiful archiving of these treacherous plastics and removal of them from the marine environment.

“The use of many unregulated and invasive practices like trawling, long line fishing and seine nets, not only strip marine organisms of any chance of survival but harm non-target species as well. The actual netting, fishing line, traps and equipment have become another issue through improper discarding which ends up back in the ocean and continues to “ghost fish” and/or be ingested by marine animals and birds.” Carmen V Machado
