Pant of Six; developing a patchwork using various swatch techniques.
In sourcing six pairs of Jeans, I analysed the psychology behind the motivation in discarding clothing, questioning those who owned them. I investigated a range of joining and mending techniques to reuse, refashion and combine the pants. Developing a prototype to utilise jeans, which use many resources, time and energy in manufacturing. The principles of Boro, Embroidery, Patchwork, Visible Mending and repositioning of pant signifiers, are not only subject to pants, as the development can be used in creating textiles. Further, the outcome can also be changed over time to grow and move with the style of the individual.
