Sustainable Thinking: The latest in Eco-Fashion at Museo Salvatore Ferragamo, Florence

A coat from our SS19 No Address Needed to Join collection was selected to feature in ‘The Latest in Eco-Fashion’ exhibition at Museo Salvatore Ferragamo, Florence, Italy. 

The exhibition, conceived by Stefania Ricci, the director of the Museo Salvatore Ferragamo and Fondazione Ferragamo – hosted works from a selection of international artists and fashion designers including Christopher Raeburn and Stella Jean. The exhibition spotlights those who hold a unique perspective on developing a thoughtful relationship with nature, through the use of organic materials and creative reuse.

The No Address Needed to Join coat, is made from deadstock yarns donated from italian mills, and shredded waste paper, from publishing waste donated by the british publishing industry. The No Address Needed to Join collection was created in collaboration with The Quaker Mobile Library in London, a project that loans books to the homeless and Hachette UK. With the coat’s fabric crafted in partnership with Mending for Good, within the textile workshops of San Patrignano, Italy, where strips of publishing waste paper were hand-woven on artisanal looms by the residents of the rehabilitation centre.
