They say the clothes make the (wo)man but what happens to those clothes when they are no longer cool or just don’t fit anymore?
Karina Kallio is the designer of Kallio, a consciously minded kidswear brand based in Brooklyn, New York. Working in fashion for 10 years exposed Karina to the amount of waste created as an industry, with roughly 85% of misused textile ending up in landfills.
With Kalio, Karina saw an opportunity to help fashion create a cleaner and better future for the next generation by creating a modern-classic kidswear line made entirely from repurposed men's shirts.
Kallio has launched a Kickstarter campaign to help raise money for their Brooklyn-based retail space. The store will be utilized to host a series of workshops where artists and designers will teach sustainable art techniques. It will also be the new home to Kallio and other like-minded brands that will be given the opportunity to "pop-up" shop on a monthly basis.
