delicate denim: read the story behind the idea
This new fabric is a beautiful, soft & sustainable material!
It is made from recycled, well loved, jeans. Its story is
delightful and its touch is gentle! To value its origin and its newly gained textile quality I call it:
The yarns of a favourite pair of jeans or denim
jacket become delicate as the garment is worn
over the years. In this worn-in softness of the
fabric, memories of an experienced time can
be sensed. I like to say the fabric gained value
by ageing; it is now softened by time.
When the denim garments become too fragile
to keep wearing, the garment's fibres can be
repurposed into material for a new & fine fabric.
I see the new fabric as a tangible indication of
appreciation! The new garment made from it
is a delicately soft new favourite!
