There has been a little cell of circular design working around in the corridors of the Estonian Academy of Arts for many years now. It has done science, created new materials, experimented with different design solutions and mapped out textile waste, and eliminated it by circulating it back by using different design methods. The 19th of September is the day for bringing it all into the spotlight and making it official. It is the opening of DiMa.
On stage, you can see fashion design that has been made from industrial leftovers and post-consumer textile waste that has seen more countries than passionate travellers can dream of. As one of the research topics of DiMa is circular design, specifically upcycling and recycling the show brings you design that has been made by using the before-mentioned design methods. An enormous amount of textile waste has been brought back into circulation through design.
