Last Tuesday we went to the Kuyichi Salvage event at Roest café Amsterdam. At this event there was an exclusive galerie-sale. In order of the charity foundation Ubuntu streetkids, Carmen Pozo Martinez designed the Salvage collection. An collection of 100% recycled, hand made and indigo dyed denim pieces from previous collections of Kuyuchi. At this exclusive galerie sale people could make an offer on the denim designs. The beautiful part of it: the complete profit went to the streetkids in Ubuntu to give them a chance to develop creative skills. We were impressed of the  collection, below you see some photos of the denim pieces

Like we already said, Carmen Pozo Martinez organized, managed & developed the "Salvage Project".
A beautiful women from Spain, that shows her own personality and gives immediately an impression that she stands for what she do and make. In this project she was free to make what she want; there where no rules and it resulted in a great collection. She gave each denim piece that little extra what makes us want to buy everything! We can't say more than that she did a really great job for a beautiful project. On the two pictures below you can see Carmen and her logo.
Beside the great collection, the location was perfect.  Roest café is located at an industrial part of Amsterdam The building was really interesting. An old building with a bar in the middle and full of old furniture like old airplain seats... everywhere you look you can see something, you can say for sure that it's an inspiring place. In the café you can also find a lot of art which was amazing! The paintings we've see were from 'Steven Ormeling' and the fine art you could find here was from 'Ap Essenbrink'. Both of them are dutch artists/ designers. The photos below give you an impression of the café and artwork.
It was a very interesting event where we keped our eyes the whole evening wide open! It inspired us; the collection, art and people. We liked this event especially because it fits in our idea of reuse clothes and clothes made in an ecofriendly way. Hope you all like this. We sure do!
