The material used in our products is pre-loved, instilled with the creases and wearing from the previous owners, varying in environments and history. Harlie K’s material is not simply recycled, it is taken apart and reformed into a novel premium product. Before becoming suitable to use,
the material is disintegrated, washed, and cut. After going through the basic process, it is met with the hands of the designer, transformed into a one of a kind, sustainable item. The process is made possible with the efforts of the senior community and local women who lacked employment opportunities.
All materials are collected according to the necessary amount for each item. Donated articles of clothing available at places including second-hand shops and churches are exchanged with the appropriate compensation. The collection and usage of versatile materials is proceeded with trying to create as little waste as possible.
Based on the material which the greatest scale, the patterns follow suit through processes which include mix-matching and reformation. The components are designated according to the sewing process diagram and are then connected.
