DRIVING IN CIRCLES is a 100% upcycled leather collection made from automotive leather from manufactures based in Scotland. The leather was retrieved from scraps coming from the car seats manufacture as well as upholstery remnants.
After designing a low waste laser cutting weaving method, each piece was hand-crafted, woven, foiled and brought to life.
This collection was made during design residencies at Open Cell and Makerversity in London, to demonstrate that local upcycling and manufacturing from waste is a possibility for the fashion industry.
This SS20 collection was shown at LFW19 thanks to Fashion Futures.
