Notions were used from the donated supplies for the department.

Blue resist dyed skirt fabric

Light Manufacturing Outfit

This outfit was designed using light manufacturing techniques. The pieces of fabric where dyed using natural dyes like indigo and walnut. These pieces were not cut in the finishing of this garment, leaving no fabric waste. This outfit is very versatile, and can born many different ways. The top can be worn backwards, and has hooks to tie the sides back, if preferred. Created by Mia Whang.

T-Shirt Rug

This rug was created from old T-shirts and burlap. The t-shirts were cut into thin strips, that were then woven into the burlap. There are approximately 1700 of these 1/2 inch by 3 inch strips. They were woven in at random. The rug edges were finished with the T-shirt hems. Created by Meagan Pickett.
