Discovering Local Biomaterials: Boertex. The idea behind the project was to create a Biomaterial garment from an abundance of a vegetable waste stream in the Netherlands. From food waste to fashion design. The intention of Boertex is to experiment with the vegetable waste and Rebecca´s job as a fashion designer is to explore whether it is possible to make a “current” design using this biomaterial. A final prototype was made with textile alternatives to raise awareness around material innovation.
