About Vol. 1: “Bio-Resin”
The debut of Vol. 1, “Bio-Resin”, shows a merge between food, plant life and fashion. Lē created and curated this material based collection through themes and motifs that are drawn from their love of texture, their all around admiration of nature and it’s beauty, as well as it’s sytems.
Disclaimer: The word “Bio-Resin” for the material collection is used for catchy phrase purposes only. No accessory or wearable contain any form of resin or plastic material. All textiles and designers were handmade by the designer and is biodegradable. Items are made to not last… challenging the fashion industry and the waste that is produced from it.
The formulation of Vol. 1: Bio-Resin became the jumping point and the realization of the label, Degrade. This material is completely biodegradable & compostable (especially when using the Lomi Composting machine).
