TECH BLENDAN INNOVATIVE BLEND OF WORLD HERITAGE WITH TODAY’S TECHNOLOGIES TO CRAFT AN ETHICAL & SUSTAINABLE CLOTHING COLLECTION
The SPELL MY NAME collection intends to create timeless, functional and long-lasting clothes with a story to tell, to rethink and re-imagine Uyghur costume as an instrument to narrate the story of its heritage and the threats its people face today. They will combine Uyghur traditional silhouettes and ikat-patterns with Ukrainian weaving traditions to design eco-woven textiles which will be used for a wider collection. They intend to transform the experience of the past into modern technological clothing using new generation TENCEL™ fabrics, bamboo, hemp and other natural fabrics that minimise the textile industry’s negative impact on the environment, while providing the wearer with a comfortable long-lasting garment.
