Pre-loved one of a kind flax shirt with illustrations by me and hand embroideries by @sin.puntoo.

This project was born out of my desire to shop responsibly and reduce the environmental impact of mass production. To make each shirt unique, I sourced used shirts and had my friend @sin.puntoo hand embroider custom designs that I created specifically for this launch.

To keep the process as sustainable as possible, I worked closely with my local community. The labels were printed at my local screen printing workshop, any necessary mending was done by a nearby seamstress and asked my friends to help me with the photographs.

This collaborative effort takes time, but it allows me to appreciate the slow progression of this work and stay connected to the people around me.
