mottainai

 

" Every little thing has a soul...

Mottainai is an ancient Buddhist philosophy that carries with it metaphysical, ethical, and aesthetic connotations. The term expresses a feeling of regret at wasting the intrinsic value of a resource or object, referring to both physical waste and to wasteful action. As a concept, mottainai reflects the feeling that arises from the awareness of both the interdependence and impermanence of all things.”

This garment was built by human hands for the human body...

It is the result of a spontaneous process, in conversation and interaction with a 46-year-old woman and a 17-year-old boy. The measurements of each person represent one half of the fabric’s width. Zero-waste pattern techniques, without subtraction, were employed.

SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS

Goal 5: Gender Equality | “Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls.”

This garment is representing the gender equality through six main qualities:

 · gender neutrality · would be reflected through a unisex coat dress to erase any differentiation

    · timeless design · would be restricted to no particular time so it is eternal

       · sustainability · would be reflected through an eco-friendly textile, respectful with the environment

           · safety · a celebration of the human body allows freedom from the occurrence or risk of injury

              · comfort · expressed as a right and as a solution, showing concern for someone suffering

                 · creativity · every person exists as the only one of her/his kind, therefore, originality is required
