Sandra Fleurke makes acoustic panels, cushions, sofa throws, benches and bedheads made of woven recycled material. All the pieces are unique: even personal items can be used in the weaving process.

The yarns, ribbons, shoelaces, cords, rubber, leather, plastics, copper, wool, cotton, zippers, velvet, flax and even shower curtains are all collected. Old clothes and knitwear are taken apart, the yarns and garments are used again.

From a distance, the item looks like a variety of shades. But in a close up the mix of materials, colours, structures and prints becomes visible and are surprising.
