eco fashion as art: the maori mini dress

eco fashion as art: the maori mini dress

Designer Rachel Wright features this custom Maori Mini Dress in her Toolgrrl Etsy shop . The hand-sewn design is similar to Rachel’s Men’s Maori Shirt which will be featured in the Cooper-Hewitt Design Museum later this year. The mini dress is handcrafted out of recycled materials: the white fabric had a former life as a 100% cotton bedsheet. The design was inspired by traditional Maori facial tattoos, sacred designs that are unique to each person. Every new Maori-inspired design that Rachel creates is altered so no two are identical. related : more eco fashion on The Alternative Consumer
