Plastic bottles crochet

Magda Van der Vloed is a South African artist, designer and product developer who loves working with recycled materials. She frequently crochets with recycled plastic bags as well as with thick PVC wire/ recycled phone cords. She also adds crochet work to recycled plastic bottles for a twist on the idea of plastic crochet.

The upcycling of resources others would deem as waste has always fascinated Magda. In the current environmental situation we find ourselves in, she believes it is critical to utilise both natural and manmade products in order to create aesthetic and meaningful artworks. As an artist, she strives to convey to the viewer that art is everywhere, from an empty milk bottle to a discarded inner tube of a tyre.
