refelt re.worked re.cycled
refelt is a concept developed by Hala Zaluczkowska, involving the reworking and recycling fashion and textiles. Quality fashion items such as coats; suits; hats and accessories are collected and worked on to create an individual and tailored item. Textiles are recycled to make tactile blankets and throws and furnishings with a bespoke offer. Each item is considered individually to create re-loved, re-worked pieces for a contemporary market. Felt is incorporated into both fashion and textile items.
