Indigenous concepts adapting to climate change

This project brings to life some forgotten low-impact Indigenous cultures of Southern Asia facing extremes of climate for centuries, to aid Fashion industry's fight against the current Climate Emergency. Upcycled materials like broken mirrors, raw uncut stones, grass weaves to make indigenous climate adapitibility a novel accepted concept. Utilising specific Traditional Ecological Knowledge backed by scientific justifications, by the means of indigenous lifestyle techniques and low-impact architectural styles, to maintain the sacrament of nature, is the key fundamental.
