Upcycled Underwear

September 16, 2010

I have a fresh ‘new’ batch of garments all ready to be lovingly upcycled into brand new beautiful underwear! I finished one pair of knickers this morning and I absolutely love them. I have developed and refined a pattern that hugs all the right places, sits comfortably and feels great. I’m not re-inventing the wheel, but I do feel confident that I can now make myself and my friends beautiful, comfortable ethical underwear that satisfies my creative urges and also happens to tick all of my boxes when it comes to environmental, social and economic concerns – providing a strong alternative to what is currently available on the highstreet. This is a tiny project and I have no intentions of trying to ‘save the world’ through it, but it is allowing me to physically ‘do’ my philosophy; ‘make’ a challenge (if only a tiny one!) to all of the systems that I disagree with; and use my creative skills in way that I feel happy and ethically comfortable. This is all just part of my process and exploration of life – and as I LOVE underwear, I guess it’s a pretty good place to start!
