Fashion revisited

Clothing labels and teabags form a body of work which is finished once 1136 labels have been sewn onto a teabag each by the artist. Called 'fashion revisited' I dedicate each teabag to one worker who died in a clothing factory 2015 in Bangladesh. Most well known clothing companies in Europe and the USA exploit cheap labour in for example asian countries.
With the sale of each teabag work I donate 25% to the Women Foundation Nepal to support women in becoming successful and honoured employers.
