why recycle?

The pile of waste is growing, especially since fast fashion is producing garments with a very short live span. The pile of textile ending up in the waste bin is growing with every minute. Clothing is loosing its value and

to me that seems wrong. Recycling has always come natural to me. It's what I do ever since I left my mothers home with 17teen. As a student, when first starting art school, turning old velvet curtains to trousers was a money issue but these days it has become more. With time, friends and friends of friends have donated materials to me, left over pieces of materials, wool, furs, trimmings and adding to this I collected the left over materials of projects I was working on. In time I have developed an antipathy to textile waste, check out the video posted on https://www.facebook.com/xpozai/ to find out more. This is why every now and than again, I work on transforming left behind pieces of textile into new products. What the process looks like you can see on the picture, what comes out you find under the tab http://xpozai.com/index.php/en/recycle-hats .
