Turning Fashion Trash to Functioning Treasure

| Design , Fashion

Designer Satoshi Itasaka created Stump Chair, a highly durable, functioning chair made entirely from excess fabric from the fast fashion industry. This excess fabric is typically disposed of at both a financial and environmental cost. But by taking it and pressing it at high pressure, the designer managed to achieve both beauty and durability. "The area of ​​fast fashion has grown rapidly as we have sought to dress faster and cheaper," says the designer. "However, there are negative aspects."
