Scraps: Fashion, Textiles, and Creative Reuse

Via The Cooper Hewitt Museum   Now through Sunday, April 16, 2017, The Cooper Hewitt's exhibition "Scraps: Fashion, Textiles, and Creative Reuse" is on!   Offering creative, alternative approaches to confronting textile waste, "Scraps: Fashion, Textiles, and Creative Reuse" presents the work of three designers who put sustainability at the heart of the design process: Luisa Cevese, founder of Riedzioni in Milan; Christina Kim, founder of dosa, inc., in Los Angeles; and Reiko Sudo, managing director at NUNO in Tokyo. Each designer’s practice involves innovative and sophisticated reuse of textile materials and resources, while engaging in preservation of local craft traditions. Through more than forty works, the exhibition explores key facets of sustainability, such as the efficient use of materials and resources, the preservation of local craft traditions and the integration of new technologies in the recycling process.   Exhibition Highlights [gallery size="large" ids="9066,9069,9065,9064,9070,9068"]   Visit the museum to view the exhibition in person, or check out their online content at cooperhewitt.org.
