Re-Ssōne. Working towards zero waste, garments are repurposed, informed by a continuous creative project of utilising handcrafts and surplus fabrics from Ssōne collections.
Provenance facts. Embroidered and patched using upcycled fabric offcuts from our production process, by FABRICWORKS, a not-for-profit organisation which supports local communities, providing textile training and development programmes for unemployed women in the UK. Woven and dyed in Italy, at a mill which prides itself on its low water usage. Sewn locally in London.
Product description. This oversized shirt in soft rose pink, reissued from The Visible Hand collection, features a bold patchwork panel on the back and a small bird embroidered on the breast, added by the women of FABRICWORKS. Its silhouette is finished with exaggerated details; the addition of the pointed collar, a curved hem and a dropped shoulder offers a relaxed appeal – offset by the textural patchwork detail and new, exposed topstitching.
The special dye treatment of this fabric means that each garment will be unique, varying in colour depth and appearance across each piece.
