More about the project
The fashion industry is a very wasteful industry because of the materials and global infrastructure. This project uses leftover materials from manufacturers that would otherwise be thrown away to create unique pieces of clothing. In this way manufacturers increase the sustainability of their business and increase employment for vulnerable groups in the fashion industry.
