CwaC has even selected some Editor’s Picks, just in time for you to add them to your holiday wish list.
At Social Alterations, our favourite pick this season for wo/men is Vancouver based Red Flag Design. Here is a snapshot of the company’s design ethos, in the context of Abandoned Materials:
“Textile innovation in the industrial world has created fabrics that surpass our expectations of performance. The desire to be stronger, lighter, faster, etc. drives a continual reinvention of materials. This constant growth leaves a trail of obsolescence; as each new material is introduced, an old one is left behind. Red Flag Design has created the ALTERNATE USE MATERIAL (AUM) line to take advantage of the abandoned materials generated through this process of evolution. Through the AUM concept, Red Flag has taken upon itself the exploration of the vast potential laying dormant in the unconsidered applications of recycled materials. The first AUM product line is made from recycled sailcloth.” (Red Flag Design, About)
