"CONNOISSEURS INSIST THAT DENIM, LIKE WINE, IMPROVES WITH AGE"
2014 - As I discovered all the wrong ingredients the market provides us and how these harmful products damage our planet, I started to rethink. How to re-use materials. By collecting old garments and textiles (mostly jeans, as this is the most commonly worn garment of this ànd the last century) there is plenty of material available in my studio. I focus on the blends (the polyesters mixed with cotton), nice stretchy! Mechanical recycling is still a challenge for blend fabrics. To upcycle is meaningful, you will contribute to a better environment, it will reduce your carbon footprint because the product does not produce extra CO2 emission.
