The next James Bond should definitely be a woman! Dressed eco-conscious, provided with the coolest sustainable gadgets. Fashionable fighting against the cruelties in the meat and garment industry.

OOOPS! IT IS ALL PART OF THE LOOP!

Deconstructivism with tights. My basic technique works well, just as with the old jeans. Rip them up with scissors! After washing and cutting them up into pieces, I use knot-, crochet-, and knit techniques.

Of course, you can use your old pantyhose to enter a bank building, but there are more ways to re-use your old panties. Lots of tips can be found on the internet. For example, you can use it as a bag with potpourri, as a filling for cushion or hug, as a cleaning cloth (works great to clean your nails), or a laundry bag for your delicate clothing.

WASTE

Conscious dealing with waste is a noble aim. We all know that we need to separate the paper and glass. However, you can also recycle textiles and clothing! Don't throw this in the trash. You can take it away to the charity shop or deposit it in the textile container nearby (also garments with holes can get a second life). You can swap with friends on a clothing exchange event, but my favorite is up-cycling.

BOLD KNITWEAR

My second no-waste challenge. The items are made in a combination of knitting, knotting & crochet. 

The recycled materials are made from parts of old nylons. Feet and body parts were removed. All materials have been properly cleaned, selected, and sanitized prior to reuse. All garments are handmade - any imperfections or variations add to the individual beauty and uniqueness of each piece. Big thanks to Sympany Textile Recycling, for collecting this waste material for me.
