SŪF: Time Traveling
Algae, wool

Weaving history with innovation, SŪF connects to the roots of the artists ancient traditions and biomaterial deisgn. Semi-transparent, with seaweed and raw wool, this bio-garment is a bridge between the human form and nature. 

A total of 96 hours were spent while placing the wool fibers inside algae bioplastic. SŪF is a “fragile armor dress” manifesting the strength of the vulnerable Feminine. SŪF is a raw material, a concept, and a process of making. When you watch this garment, imagine it as a layer, a surface covering a female nude, where SŪF functions as an “organic layer” reconnecting the human body to mother nature.
