Decay = decomposition =
De – compost – ition: Tote
Explores the idea of reusing the earth’s resources to their full capacity.
Hand felted merino wool with cotton muslin lining, hand dyed using leaves from Eucalyptus Cinerea (Argyle Apple), picked up from under the tree, presumably ready for decomposition into mulch.
Machine sewn and trimmed with leather to become a tote, to help to avoid the use of plastic bags which take so much longer to decompose than leaves.
