Description

The jeans industry has evolved and has become an integral part of American culture. However, there are concerns about chemicals used in the production of blue jeans so that recycling of used jeans is needed (Woodward & Miller, 2011). The first objective of creating this design was to create a sustainable garment using recycled jeans. A second objective was to combine symbols from the East and from the West to encourage use of recycled jeans world-wide. The inspiration for the design came from the Korean traditional garment, Hanbok, that best expresses the beauty of Korea (Kang & Kim, 2013).
