Textile production, especially denim, is a source of tremendous pollution. Not only is Subversive Textiles committed to creating as little waste as possible, we are always on the lookout for materials that we can repurpose into functional works of art.
Repurposing materials often makes the product creation process more challenging and time-consuming. Instead of obtaining the perfect material to conform to the designer's vision, incorporating repurposed materials requires the designer to conform their design vision to best use the existing materials. Fortunately, the process is often worth it, the natural idiosyncrasies of the repurposed material are often full of character and inspiring.
