‘An ocean full of opportunities’
Carolyn Raff studied textile design at the State Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Stuttgart and at the KADK Copenhagen. The main focus of her work, within the field of material research, is sustainability driven by a passion for experimental research.
‘An ocean full of opportunities’ is a research project about sustainable solutions for the fashion & textile industry. For this project, different types of algae-based products were used to design and create new materials. Agar-agar, an algae-based gelatin substitute is used in a variety of experiments to create bio-plastics. This completely biodegradable material, being showcased for the first time in Australia at RawAssembly™ Melbourne, can be produced in anvariety of shades, looks and structures, some of which are on display today.
Carolyn has recently shown her work in London at Biodesign Here Now & Designers Open 2019, Exhibition for the green concept award 2020, Leipzig

COMPANY OBJECTIVES 2019/2020
Goal 12 wants to make us think twice about the things we use, the waste we create, and how that impacts the planet. Changing our behaviour towards more sustainable actions such as recycling really makes a difference when everyone -that includes individuals, companies, government - contributes.
