“Beyond Plastic”


I want to share some photos of “Beyond Plastic”exhibition in Hong Kong earlier this year. To be invited to contribute an installation to the prestigious Heritage1881 building, one of the most famous heritage buildings in Hong Kong, shows the importance and concern that cultural institutions, brands and the public are now placing on marine pollution. 

Driven by concern and love for the ocean environmental artist Liina Klauss joins hands with Plastic-Free-Seas foundation and sponsor Breguet. “Beyond Plastic: Breguet, the Marine Explorer” showcases an array of artworks with deep connection to marine. The spotlight falls on the large-scale installation created by German artist Liina Klauss consisting of well over 10.000 pieces of marine litter collected on Hong Kongs shores. The installation is shown at the former Marine Police Headquaters at Heritage1881 and is open for public viewing on Saturday 30th and Sunday 31st of March 2019. 

About Race for Water, a Foundation to Preserve Water 
The Race for Water Foundation is an organization dedicated to water preservation and the ocean in particular. This indispensable resource is under massive threat from plastic pollution and must be protected. The Foundation aims to identify, promote and implement solutions that will give end-of-life plastic a value and create new sources of income for the people most affected by pollution. Using this innovative approach inspired by the principles of a circular economy and social entrepreneurship, Race for Water Foundation seeks to prevent plastic litter from reaching waterways and leaking all the way down to the ocean.

Most likely so, since the majority of the questions we get from embroiderers revolve around the problems of dealing with the slinky, stretchy, slippery stuff. But there was a time when fleecewear was the perpetrator. Just how do you maintain the stitches from penetrating the stack? How do you accomplish fine detail with all that pile? Which stabilizers function best and also what is this covering things, anyhow? With the growth of all types of activewear pushing fleecewear sales, along with its comfort aspect, cost and also lightweight heat, it's worth a testimonial of how to get the very best results when stitching on fleece.it's a good site
    First Fabric, Then Branding
    Fleece first entered the market via the residence decoration sector, as velour that was used for upholstering furnishings. It is a weaved fabric made from two sorts of thread that is combed on one side in order to produce nap. When the cleaning produces a shaggy, irregular nap, it is sheared to the wanted length.
