ART FOR A CAUSE
Sakroots supports various nature related charities, each tied to a unique artist print. They all share in our social mission to make the world better.
SeaTrees, a project of sustainable surf, is the first regenerative ocean-health-focused platform created for the global ocean loving community. It's designed to help reverse climate change, while also catalysing a chain-reaction of "positive" benefits, such as, providing habitat for threatened species and creating jobs for local communities.
Sakroots is excited to begin our journey into a sustainable future with the launch of our exclusive Seascape print. This new, eco-friendly and vegan collection is produced with a blend of environmentally conscious reprieve material, using recycled plastic water bottles.
Designed to help raise awareness for ocean conservation, the Balinese coral reef-inspired print is reminiscent of an alluring aquatic ecosystem and its colourful inhabitants.
Q&A WITH YELLENA JAMES
What was your inspiration for Seascape?
My goal was to create a pattern that incorporates a sea turtle into a fresh, vivid design which pulls from and expands on the forms found in underwater flora and fauna.
What inspires your art in general?
My artwork is about creating a whole range of imaginary ecosystems that are hauntingly exotic and yet somewhat familiar. I'm inpired by all of the potential life that could exist somewhere, sometime; unknown lifeforms, interacting with an unknown environment, trying to capture moments, feelings, movement and balance in an imaginary place.
