the nanugi / Using resources smartly

the nanugi
the nanugi

Up-cycling project ‘The nanugi’ is devoted to solve social issues such as scarce resources, pollution and unemployment. We inspire worthiness to the worthless leftover fabrics with sophisticated design. In that process, the pollution caused by incineration or landfill from the leftover materials has been decreased and people might get chances to work. Now we are using leftover fabrics to make products. Sooner or later, we expect to use various materials to make better up-cycling brand. Taking care of our environments for the next generation, creating valuable jobs for our society and donating for the community are all about ‘The nanugi’

The jury thought this was a good project. However, the design aspect – although it’s only one aspect among many others – is not given enough consideration. Besides, the project is not innovative enough. Altogether, it was not enough to deserve an award.
