Amazing! Bravo!

Fantastic idea. I wonder if there is a solution to recycling and reusing other natural fibres and synthetic garments.

How brilliant!

Do you remember the "shoddy"-fabric in Strömsborg? Reuse by ripping up wool-clothes to make filling-material.

I am totally in love ! as a recycler wish we had a way of recycling all fabrics ourselves. I recycle in some crazy ways.

It's on it's way!

Shopping #ethically is so much more than the beautiful prints and patterns that represent the cultural diversity in our world. It is about an appreciation and respect for the artisans that make these products and their culture. Next time you are out shopping for that unique piece to add to your wardrobe or home, pay attention to how it was made and who made it. Don't replicate or appropriate the stories and identities being represented. Protect the intellectual property of artisans around the globe!
