Wille-Meike Brand

Nowadays mass-produced garments are discarded with the same ease as sustenance products due to low prices and the fast changing life cycle of trends. A printing technique emerged from experiment with the abundance of polyester textile waste, a material mainly used in the fast fashion industry. By applying heat, the “soul” of a garment can be transferred repeatedly onto another absorbing surface without losing it’s color. These copies result into unique reproductions of a product that originates from mass-production. The technique provides a new function for discarded garments, not by re-using the textile itself but the imprint.
