Description

As a sustainable approach the reuse of textiles gives these materials a second life and limiting the waste of unwanted or used material. The idea of these fabric pieces as survivors, or old things that have kept their value thus also give the final garment an association to sustainable values (Fletcher, 2008). In this piece I have worked with the more difficult pieces to upcycle in a garment namely the collars.
