Sustainable and Recycled Textiles

This film clip looks at how fashion can be created by disassembling, re-cutting and transforming old garments. One business that is using recycled textiles in this way is Junkies Design, who sell their products to an exclusive market. Items in their winter collection are demonstrated, including a jacket made from a waistcoat and a skirt made from a pair of suit trousers.
