Raw Materials shows the vulnerability of materials. We are used to buy a lot every year and throw away almost the same amount. But we should be more aware of all the materials we use, because is has a big impact: the proces it takes to make a product cost a lot of resources, chemicals, hard work and transport.
Raw Materials shows almost literally the proces of clothes, from the raw material into yarns, into fabric, into a garment. The message is simple: be more aware, be more sustainable: choose well and buy less.
