From Yarn to Fabric

This collection refers to the workers in an industrial textile manufacturing, and the products they make. My question is ‘How can I use elements from the process of making fabrics, and still make functional workwear?’ I aimed at a conceptual approach to the industry, where the workwear shows signs of the knowledge and craftsmanship the workers possess.
