The project uses corn husks and “diseased” crops to create denim from a blend of cotton and corn waste. The purple/blue dye is derived from cultured plant pathogens and algae commonly growing in eutrophic sites from fertilizer runoff. The goal is to build a circular system between corn agriculture and the fashion industry.
