Andrea Bos

Andrea Bos: Patchwork at its best!

For honest, unique, personalised and circular clothes, Andrea Bos in Antwerp is the place to be. A typical element of the garments is the combination of different jeans. These form a cool patchwork effect and make each garment slightly different. For her collections, she uses second-hand jeans. This economic model aims to give materials a function for as long as possible and create as little waste as possible.

Kibibi: jewellery made from recycled or natural materials

At Kibibi, most of the jewellery is made from recycled or natural materials, so circular. These include circular earrings made from copper wire recovered from electrical appliances. In addition, Kibibi jewellery is wrapped in kraft paper and the jewellery cards are made of recycled paper. The plastic envelopes used by Kibibi were rescued by An from the container park, preventing them from ending up in landfill. In this way, An tries to minimise the footprint of her jewellery.
