Umbrella Petticoat

Autumn is here and after hot long summer clouds begin to gather. On rainy and windy days that are coming, textile ecology and city deliver us a unique opportunity. The next time it pours, wait for it to calm down a bit, and walk out on the street fearless! It's a perfect moment for umbrella harvest ! We go out to harvest, armed with soissors or penknives in the raincoat. When we find a broken umbrella, we recover the fine material aterial from the metal frame. At this point we are interested in the waterproof hexagonal material*.

They could be transformed into sylish and waterproof umbrella petticoat skirts.
