I started collaging this reclaimed pant around these samples of fabric that a friend gave me from her daughter's interior design studies and the "yes we can" that I had cut from a tee. From there I started imagining a garden full of big bright beautiful flowers and some big jungle animals that could roam free and represent power and strength. I added the stripes cut from a pant to contrast the colors and decided on the neon yellow embroidery thread because it would look amazing!
It was hand-embroidered by Luz Marina Osorio during 40 hours of craftwomanship in Medellin, Colombia.
All of my pieces are one-of-a-kind, designed by repurposing materials and supporting craftwomanship. Find out more about my story here
