Decomposing 350 T-shirts, 60 Jeans and 4 leather sofas, the young German brand Benu Berlin has created an interesting eco friendly collection, transforming old and ordinary materials “into expressive textures to demonstrate respect for their production and sources they are made of”. The most produced garments in the world such as t-shirts and jeans, are also the most thrown away. So the question is: is there a way to turn this cycle around? Anna Bach and Karen Jessen propose with their concept “street couture” to “upcycle” the garments and extend the lives of streetwear clothes by transforming them into couture garments with handcraft techniques such as macramé.
Fantastic use of T-shirts and jeans. Recycling at its best. Very impressive finish. Thank you for the post.
