Maria Eva Russo joins BRIDGE Team

Maria Eva Russo, who joined us on the Alencon Trip and showed her work at the Eco-Design Event , has joined the BRIDGE  Research Team led by Dr Joan Farrer at University of Brighton to support Toni Hicks  on the Textiles work stream. Maria recently completed the MA in Sustainable Design with her project on protective clothing for modern shepherds: ““The lookerers cloak is a slow designed garment specially created for a community of modern shepherds of Brighton and Hove. The idea to create a ‘new folk’ attire, it had the purpose to blend and convey past and present using local wool and a reclaimed tent; applying traditional and modern-day skills.
This closed loop project covers the four streams of integrated sustainability  (environment, people, economy, and culture) and the cloak can be seen as a textile metaphor of endurable design culture.”
