Nelumbo Nucifera

At this moment, China occupies the first place in the world at cotton production for the textile business prezent, followed by India and the US . It is a known fact that to wet the cotton necessary to make a new pair of jeans  somewhere around 15 000 litres of water is consumed.

I created this statement head piece from scraps of dated denim to show that we can give new useful, decorative form to unused cotton. The piece is inspired by 19th century chinese  ceremonial wear, based on the lotus flower, which was intensely used in Asia as a symbol for spiritual rebirth and illumination. The lotus flower is considered sacred both in the hinduist as well as the  budhist culture.
