Millions of tons of textile waste ends up in landfills or being burned.
The data is out there and honestly it has a doomsday stank to it. It just isn’t
nice. Or okay.
We humans throw so much “away” not realising“away” doesn’t exist..
Anyway, this is how we roll:
After second hand shops are unable to sell items, the solution is always this
The North sends “help” to the South. In our case- Estonia has been getting
textile donations from Scandinavia for decades now.
Right before the clothes reach their “burial/burning site” we disrupt the broken
system by collecting the “waste”
repair redesign refiber
We sort them , clean them, redesign/rework them & give them a new life
→what cannot be saved in it’s current form will be transformed into it’s original state of fiber by shredding
/chemical free process.
→Home textiles such as CURTAINS and tablecloths are turned into BUCKET HATS by happy free-range
Art is a great way to hide “imperfections”.
This is a matter of perspective- something can be
a defect or an effect.
