Bags in Handwoven Upcycled Plastic
Casc8 sets out to challenge the way we perceive materials. In face of increasing plastic waste around the globe, Casc8 collaborates with Khamir in Gujarat, India, a NGO transforms plastic waste into a useful material through handweaving, for a new project.
The project aims at protect the local environment as well as culture of local craftsmanship. This project generate income for local community, from collecting the plastic to weaving it. Every step of creating the upcycled plastic textiles is accomplished by human hand, without machines or electricity.
Casc8 旨在挑戰大眾對物料的感知。基於對全球日益嚴重的塑料垃圾，Casc8 與印度古吉拉特邦的非政府組織 Khamir 合作。該組織致力於收集塑料垃圾，然後通過手工編織進行廢物再用。
