World 104, Exploration A

Female fashion model in a black macrame dress.

In World 104, Singapore must maximise use of its local resources.

This collection makes use of macrame, a technique commonly used in sailing. Garments are also made consciously from a new material innovation which is the combination of recycled plastics and upcycled scraps of fabric.

Does this World remind you of something?

I am keen to hear about any historical or contemporary real-world examples – whether individual practices, subcultures or mainstream activities – that this fiction brings to mind.

Please share any such examples using this form. Thank you!
