Valdís Steinarsdóttir

Eyes on Talents member, Valdís Steinarsdóttir works in Iceland as an independent designer, mainly focusing on material experiments by recycling organic matter. With her project Shape.Repeat Valdís Steinarsdóttir has created a range of garments that are made using liquid material molded into the shape of the finished garment. The material is left to solidify and needs no seams or stitches to hold it together. If the wearer grows tired of the clothing, it can simply be reliquefied and re-cast into a fresh item, making a new garment using the same material. With this method Valdís Steinarsdóttir aims to reduce textile waste and the use of synthetic materials.
