Valdís Steinarsdóttir makes jelly clothing that can be endlessly remade

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Icelandic designer Valdís Steinarsdóttir has created a range of translucent, gelatinous garments that are cast into moulds rather than cut from a pattern in a bid to eliminate waste.

The vest tops, which are being presented as part of the DesignMarch festival in Reykjavík, are made using either gelatin or agar – a gelling agent derived from red algae.

Once worn down or no longer needed, they can be melted down to create new garments using the same material as part of a closed-loop system.
