Parts of printed or patterned cotton jersey laid out as applique on transparent fabric scraps. Visible shoulder pads and visible edge finishing. These parts are rescued from boxes of unwanted items of friends and neighbours after they have decluttered their wardrobes and are combined with scraps resulting from the industrial cutting process at the clothing factories. They are deliberately sewn in a DIY manner as to illustrate the 'homemade' techniques. The item can not be reproduced identically with respect to the type of fabrics and their exact arrangement nor to the seams irregularities. Each piece is individually cleaned, laid out, and cut at the Common studio and finished locally in Romania. Each garment comes with an individual tag that tells the story of the included parts, handwritten by the designer.
