Recycling Textiles

Material Exploration | Sustainability

This is a personal project which was inspired by the movie 'The True Cost' which talks about the other side of the textile industry and Fast Fashion. The textile industry is the second most polluting after the oil industry. The clothes we buy should at least provide 'Roti, Kapda Aur Makaan' to the people who make them.

The aim was to reuse old textiles and come up with new ways to use these textile. I used Hollander to bring the textiles back to fiber stage. Then tried to make new textile without conventional labor intensive Techniques.
