Our Philosophy

Trash to Art; Silence to Woke! Taking all the unloved and unworn fabrics designed into unique statement pieces for the youth to rise against Fast Fashion. There is no room to breathe! We are lost and farther away than ever in an apocalypse of fashion residues, all scrambling for attention where we are unheard. What if we turned this one-time use Baroque into timeless Broqué pieces?
