We just love it when we get to see a great project all come together, event better when we have been priviliged enough to be a part of it. One such project was earlier this year when we are approached by Kusheda Mensah from Modular by Mensah to produce some embroidered labels for her latest project, in conjuction with Adidas.

”Inspired by playfulness, these modular shapes seek to redefine the idea of sustainable social well-being. Made from recycled foam and post-consumer recycled PET fabrics.”

The very small text and sheer fabrics provided some technical challenges for the embroidery but with some creative thinking, they came out very smart.
