Winterluxe Recycled Cashmere

Janna Hurtzig

I believe that, as designers, it is important to consider our impact on the environment. This notion has led me, over time, to favour working with increasing amounts of recycled textiles. For my Winterluxe line, I chose to work with discarded cashmere exclusively to bridge the gap between high end, luxury fabrics and green fashion. I have been working with over dying, printing and sewing techniques to create products that look and feel brand new, yet utilize as much of the original sweater as possible.

Working with such a medium allows me to create a repeatable, yet one of a kind, sellable collection, whereby the same style of item is available in an array of textures and colours.
