RECYCLED TEXTILE

Because innovation in fashion is not all about new textiles, S M K recycles the leftover materials from the previous collections in order to create the clothes lining and to make our own packagings.

For the 2016 Spring-Summer collection, S M K tried a new challenge: create a whole collection without buying any new materials. Therefore, we used the leftover stock from our fabrics and accessories to create the SS16 collection.

This year, we recycled textiles from our Atelier to create our new reversible satin bags.
