Recycling Cloth











For my latest project we were covering a brief set up by a clothes company that recycles old garments into new ones (Upcycling). The designers were from 123 Bethnall Green Road in London. Here are the inspiration images from preen, and a few pages from my sketch book. And lastly some of the samples I created from an old bed sheet, some jersey vest tops and a few doilies and silk waist ties given to me by work.
