These sweatshirts are upcycled from unwanted sweatshirts that would be discarded because of stains and holes. We designed a method that we can apply to all sweatshirts that have holes and / or stains. The beauty and magic about this method is that the position of the stains and holes dictate the eventual look and design of the sweatshirt. The method is only the solution to remove them. Instead of hiding the seams on the inside we show the seams on the outside as if it were scars from a previous life this item has led. The machine we use for this method is a vintage 1950’s American made ‘Union Special’ locking-machine. The curved needle and specific stepsize of this beautiful machine create a locked seam unique to this vintage machine. All pieces are hand made in our Studio.
We exclusively use stained and damaged sweatshirts for this. No perfect condition sweatshirts have or will be used. The inspiration for this method comes from the idea of designing a ‘last-resort’ system before recycling (or worse burning / discarding) to ensure an item finds its way back into a circular loop with a low as possible impact.
