Zena Holloway is a self-taught photographer, maker and material innovator. She grows sustainable fashion and sculpture from grass root that tells a story about our oceans and challenges perceptions of materiality.

By collaborating with nature, she grows grass root into wearable art and asks the question: What if we could grow our clothes from seed? Winner of the Green Concept Fashion Award 2022, her creations with root explore the promising possibility of root grown textiles and imagine a future where fashion is sustainable and compostable
