Just thought I'd share this fantastic use of textiles in the recent contest: Reconstruction 2.0, where Parson's School of Design students deconstructed and reconstructed discarded press samples from Louis Vuitton's Spring/Summer 2010 collection.

So, yes, it's wool week.  Interesting.  I have to say I really didn't have any inkling of the existence of the Campaign for Wool until I stumbled upon an article on the British Vogue website.  Apparently, the campaign was started by the Prince of Whales in January of this year to educate people on the [...]
