World 144, Exploration A

Fashion shot set in a ruined building.

No Borders is a conceptual emerging fashion brand in World 144. In this revolutionary fashion system, which has risen from the heart of refugee camps, refugees continuously challenge the odds of limited resources by using a mixture of primitive sustainable design mythologies, shared and Rent-Based Closed-Loop Supply Chain for Fashion Products, with inherited craftsmanship of the region from different authentic types of embroideries from Syrian Embroidery to Palestinian, Jordanian and North African embroideries, and other techniques like Brocade, Crochet, weaving, jewelry making, leather handmade products.

The brand website demonstrates how these heroes manage to thrive despite challenging circumstances.

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!
