Project Precious Trash – a project about clothes and consumption.

Johanna Törnqvist graduated from Studio Berçot in Paris in 1990, and has since studied in New York, Japan and Stockholm. She has a passion of making jewelry and garments out of recycled textiles and plastics. For her designs she uses trash and waste from her own, her friends’ or family’s consumption of daily waste and packaging material. By using this kind of material she transforms the unprecious material to something precious. Right now she has an exhibition called “Project Precious Trash” in Stockholm at the gallery of Handarbetets Vänner where you for instance find dresses made from empty potato chip bags.
