This workshop was created whith a belgian designer Idylle design and with the association Unica earth

With a designer and insired by Matisse we created clothes patch that could be use to upcycled garment.

Either fixing holes or strain or just pimping old clothes. They become signature clothes from famous and responsible designers!

The goal is to sensibilize about textile waste and extend clothes lifetime.

These are the fabrics that can be easily use for the workshop (only use fabrics that not fray):

  • Wool
  • Polyester
  • Velvet
  • Silk
  • Jersey

To improve the pourcentage of fabrics used, all the forms were assembled together as close as possible in the drawing file.

'At first, I apprehended the event out of pure curiosity, in order to learn more about what circular fashion is, I must admit that I also took great pleasure in lending myself to the game of re- pimp my old denim jacket and then, following the workshop organized where we were able to receive more information, it raised my awareness and I became aware that small everyday gestures were not so restrictive, Lydia'
