As the name of the project suggests, the sustainable collection utilises an updated patchwork technique from traditional Italian expertise which focuses on integrating invention with environmental awareness.
Each piece of the collection is uniquely made and handcrafted from materials of leftover Tod’s productions, which not only reflects the masterful craftsmanship and attention to detail that the designers at Tod’s have, but also shows their mission to embrace more sustainable ways of handcrafting bags.
In celebration of this project, contemporary artist Willie Cole has also created unique sculptures under the Artcycling initiative in collaboration with Tod’s artisans, made with creative reuse and recycle in mind.
The focus of the project combines ingenuity in creativity with the recovery of unused materials in the creation of bags that are made using the patchwork technique. This innovative series of bags will be presented in Tod’s flagship boutique on Via Montenapoleone this September.
