HOW IT ALL BEGAN
It all started with Kaisa, whose passion of post-industrial textile waste had always been the starting point of creating fashion and interior design. Vast amounts of unused and forgotten materials were something that made her eyes sparkle every time she went on a hunt of new ideas.
One day, after learning for years with professor and fashion designer Reet Aus, one of pioneers in sustainable fashion, a group of master's degree design students, including Kaisa, went to Chennai, India, to Aruna Clothing Company for an internship.
Interviewing and analysing the company's textile waste in their operations as much as developing products out of the left-over materials for industrial manufacturing was something of an ahhaa moment for Kaisa.
What if this was beyond an experimental and educational programme?
