Description

The purpose of Bonded was to explore using quilting methods to encapsulate 100% cotton secondhand garments between layers of silk organza. Bonded is part of a larger collection that explored my personal history and temporary existence; reflected in garments that are similarly ephemeral and personal. By exploring the use of natural and secondhand fibers through sampling this garment was able to achieve the objectives of creating a fully biodegradable object using only natural textiles, threads, and findings and encapsulating secondhand garments between layers of silk organza. This project provides knowledge about designing with biodegradable textiles and findings, in the hopes of developing garments that are as biodegradable as the bodies that wear them.
