THE STORY

”Poetry of waste”

 

 

It started with a passion for denim and a wish to make a change. An artistic investigation from a poetic perspective.

The aim was to maintain the story of the material in a recycling process.

The result turned out to be a new and innovative recycling technique with potential to scale industrially and with a positive impact on the environment.

This is just the beginning of the story…
