(Right leg) By deconstructing garments to their original state, it exposes the humanity of the material, as well as the laborer. These deconstructed parts become the textiles I use to create new work. The pants you see above, have an additional step of catharsis involved. The garments being exposed are that of ex boyfriends’ - seams torn apart, pocket lint removed, and tangled threads pulled away. Like these jeans, relationships leave marks on us, but rather than seeing the material as waste, exhibiting the rawness of what it once was, redeems us and allows us to be made into something even more intricate and beautiful than before. . . . #redeemed #repurposed #repurposedjeans #repurposeddenim #denim #exposed #exposeddenim #jeans #pants #upcycled #upcycleddenim #upcycledjeans #recycled #recycleddenim #recycledjeans #madeinLA #madinusa #handmade #imadethis #truecost #fashionrevolution #catharsis #therapy #fashiontherapy #exboyfriend #breakups #relationships #nowaste at As We Dwell
