Circularity Through Community

Bob and Robert are working to build a repeatable model of reciprocal design by preserving textile waste by collaborating with brands and local communities. For this challenge, they partnered with local Guatemalan and Hmong communities in North Carolina to produce sweaters, ponchos, beanies, and other clothing items to empower the city’s economy and communities.
