29.4 – 25.5 BLUE JEANS
The exhibition BLUE JEANS shows textiles in various forms with jeans as main material and theme. The aim of the exhibition is to use a material which otherwise would be thrown away. By cutting old jeans trousers and taking care of the material, something new and different is created. With todays environment difficulties it is important for a modern designer to take that perspective in consideration.
