We’re currently living in a rapidly changing world and hectic times. In this so-called ‘Age of Envy’, our desire for more, new, and perfection skyrockets, fueled by social media channels continuously broadcasting ‘success’.

By reusing these jeans, I created a number of new and diverse items, some of which have unusual design features, or a rough finish. I hope that these items inspire people to appreciate beauty despite imperfections, and to be frugal with material goods. Sometimes all you need is some help from others, to give something a second life. Take action. Together. Now. Here we go
