Capsule coat project


The project

The project shows how locally reused materials can be turned into high quality fashion articles. The materials used in this project are sourced by local textile companies. The aim is to create a prototype of a quilted designer coat, using 100% recycled materials treated with dyeing and waterproof coating for endurance using traditional crafting technologies. The project fosters local production using local workshops to develop business opportunities.
