From the COMPOS(t)E COLLECTION:

This series of garments makes use of scrap fabrics collected over many years by transmuting this “waste” (generally discarded by manufacturers after the garment is cut out) into a valuable byproduct by patchworking them together into a new material of its own. Creating from this recomposed fabric closes the cycle from fiber to garment and back again, and allows the process to be closer to zero waste, much like composting. The wide variety of scrap sizes and colors also allows for the opportunity of new compositions to be discovered, and the quantities available inform the way the garment is constructed.
